The septal angle, an angle between the interventricular septum and the line connecting the sternum midpoint and thoracic vertebral spinous process, as measured by computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA), has been observed to be increased in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH), but its meaning remains unclear. The aim of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
