Pulmonary pulse transit time: a novel echocardiographic indicator of hemodynamic and vascular alterations in pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary fibrosis.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Pulse transit time (PTT) is generally assumed to be a surrogate marker for blood pressure changes and arterial stiffness. The aim was to evaluate whether pulmonary PTT (pPTT) may be noninvasively measured by Doppler echocardiography and whether it might be valuable for detecting pulmonary hemodynamic and vascular alterations. METHODS We… (More)
