Background: Transthoracic echocardiography is commonly used to estimate pulmonary arterial systolic pressure (PASP) and to diagnose pulmonary hypertension (PH). However, some recent studies have questioned the accuracy of Doppler echocardiography (DE) in the assessment of PASP. The present meta‐analysis was performed to estimate the accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of DE in the assessment of PASP. Methods: A literature search and data extraction of English and non‐English articles… Expand
Diagnostic accuracy of transthoracic echocardiography for pulmonary hypertension: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
TTE has a clinical value in diagnosing PH, although it cannot yet replace RHC considered as the gold standard, and the accuracy of TTE may be improved by shortening the time interval between TTE and RHC and by developing an appropriate threshold. Expand
Reliability of Noninvasive Assessment of Systolic Pulmonary Artery Pressure by Doppler Echocardiography Compared to Right Heart Catheterization: Analysis in a Large Patient Population
TLDR
Doppler echocardiography proved to be a reliable method for the assessment of sPAP, being well suited to establish the noninvasive diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension in patients with cardiac diseases. Expand
CT-Base Pulmonary Artery Measurementin the Detection of Pulmonary Hypertension
TLDR
Both main pulmonary artery diameter and PA:A ratio are helpful for diagnosing pulmonary hypertension and should be interpreted in parallel with the results of traditional tests such as echocardiography. Expand
Correlation Between Doppler Echocardiography and Right Heart Catheterisation-Derived Systolic and Mean Pulmonary Artery Pressures: Determinants of Discrepancies Between the Two Methods.
TLDR
Transthoracic echocardiography frequently overestimated PAP in comparison with RHC, especially in hypertensive women with arrhythmias and under diuretic treatment, and the main factors responsible for discrepancies were: female gender, arrhythmic cardiac electrical activity, systemic arterial hypertension, and diurtic treatment.

Estimation of pulmonary artery pressure with transesophageal echocardiography
TLDR
Assessment of the difference in systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sysPAP) measuring both, invasively sysPAP and estimated RVSP with TEE in 3 different views found the best agreement between the 2 methods was found in patients with severe TR and in the ME RV inflow-outflow and the modified bicaval view.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension versus Pulmonary Venous Hypertension: How Much Information Can Contrast Doppler Echocardiography Provide?
TLDR
A metaanalysis to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of Doppler echocardiography to assess pulmonary arterial systolic pressure (PASP) and to diagnose pulmonary hypertension (PH) concluded that the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of DE for the diagnosis of PH were 88%, 56%, and 63%, respectively.

Diagnostic value of chest spiral CT scan and Doppler echocardiography compared to right heart catheterization to predict pulmonary arterial hypertension in patients with scleroderma
TLDR
Both chest spiral CT scan and Doppler echocardiography are very useful to diagnose PAH and its severity in patients with scleroderma. Expand
Pros and Cons of Echocardiography in the Screening, Diagnosis and Follow-up of Patients with Systemic Sclerosis Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension – a Rheumatologist's Perspective
TLDR
Cheaper tests such as PFTs and NT-proBNP are adequate in most cases to suggest when a right heart catheterization should be performed and echocardiograms are not necessary in every SSc patient every year. Expand
Reply
We appreciate the case report and discussion presented by Dr. Cheng et al. regarding the use of contrast in Doppler echocardiography (DE). While our meta-analysis did not extend to the use ofExpand

The RVSP is not an accurate test for the assessment of PH in IPF patients and awareness of the various combinations of threshold values for RVSP with and without PFT and 6MWT might nonetheless assist clinicians in risk stratifying IPF Patients for the presence of PH. Expand

TLDR
CWD appears to be useful for the noninvasive estimation of PAP in patients with COPD, however, this method is associated with two limitations: the high percentage of patients in whom the PAP cannot be estimated by CWD, mainly because of the absence of Doppler-detected TR, and the high value of the standard error of the estimate.
