The timing of valve replacement in patients with mitral valve disease, severe resting pulmonary hypertension, and severe symptoms is usually straightforward. However, this may not be true for patients with mild to moderate resting pulmonary pressures and symptoms that are difficult to evaluate. The measurement of hemodynamic parameters with exercise has been useful during cardiac catheterization. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hemodynamic significance of dyspnea provoked by… CONTINUE READING
