To evaluate the pulmonary artery pressure in patients with thalassemia major, Doppler echocardiography was performed in 33 patients with thalassemia major (aged 2 to 24 years) and 33 normal controls. Pulmonary artery pressure was estimated by (1) measuring the systolic transtricuspid gradient from tricuspid regurgitation and adding it to the right atrial pressure, estimated by the response of the inferior vena cava to deep inspiration, and (2) measuring the time to peak velocity of pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
