Optimizing the non-invasive imaging of right ventricular (RV) function is of increasing interest for therapy monitoring and risk stratification in patients with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension (IPAH). Therefore, this study evaluated strain and strain rate echocardiography as a tool for comprehensive assessment of RV function and disease severity in IPAH patients. In 30 IPAH patients [WHO functional classes II–IV; mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) 48.8 ± 12.5 mmHg; pulmonary vascular… CONTINUE READING
