OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine whether right ventricular (RV) ischemia is a contributory factor in the development of RV dysfunction in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). BACKGROUND Patients with advanced PPH develop RV dysfunction, characterized by a decreased cardiac output, increased right atrial pressure (RAP) and/or elevated RV end-diastolic pressure, which progresses to heart failure and death. The cause of this dysfunction is unknown. Right… CONTINUE READING
