AIMS The present role of echocardiography is generally restricted to screening for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The aim of our study was to identify new echocardiographic prognostic factors for mortality in PAH which would give this imaging modality a genuine role in patient management. METHODS AND RESULTS At inclusion, all patients underwent right cardiac catheterization and echocardiography. Seventy-nine patients were followed for a median of 12 months, of whom 16 died of their… CONTINUE READING
