This study aimed to assess the long-term course of pulmonary arterial hypertension related to infection with human immunodeficiency virus (PAHRH) and the influence of antiretroviral therapy (ART) on its characteristics. We retrospectively analyzed all 47 patients in the Swiss HIV Cohort Study in whom PAHRH was diagnosed. Among 35 patients who underwent follow-up Doppler echocardiography, the right ventricular systolic pressure over right atrial pressure gradient increased by a median of 25 mm… CONTINUE READING
