Computed tomographic measurement of airway remodeling and emphysema in advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Correlation with pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract

RATIONALE Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an established complication of advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) associated with increased mortality. The mechanisms coupling PH and bronchial obstruction are unknown; in particular, PH appears to be unrelated to emphysema. We hypothesized that computed tomographic (CT) measurement of airway… (More)
