Mild pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with advanced COPD is common, but its effects on exercise capacity are controversial. The objective of our study was to investigate the effects of mild PH (35 > mPAP ≥ 25 mmHg) on exercise capacity in patients with advanced emphysema, candidates for lung transplantation. We retrospectively reviewed and compare the data from right heart catheterization and cardiopulmonary exercise test, performed in patients with advanced emphysema, candidate for lung… CONTINUE READING
