The aims of the present study were to identify prognostic factors for systemic sclerosis (SSc)-related interstitial lung disease and to clarify the possible causative role of manometric oesophageal involvement. Consecutive SSc patients underwent pulmonary function tests and oesophageal manometry. They were included in the study if pulmonary function tests were repeated >12 months after baseline. The primary end-point was a decrease of >or=10% of the predicted value in forced vital capacity (FVC… CONTINUE READING
