Impaired Right Ventricular Hemodynamics Indicate Preclinical Pulmonary Hypertension in Patients With Metabolic Syndrome

Abstract

BACKGROUND Metabolic disease can lead to intrinsic pulmonary hypertension in experimental models. The contributions of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and obesity to pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular dysfunction in humans remain unclear. We investigated the association of MetS and obesity with right ventricular structure and function in patients… (More)
