Response to inhaled nitric oxide predicts survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(J Card Fail, 2011-04)
OBJECTIVE: To examine the ability of vasodilator response to predict survival in a diverse cohort of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). PATIENTS & METHODS: A total of 214 consecutive treatment-naive patients referred ...
Association of anemia and long-term survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(Int J Cardiol, 2011-08-04)

Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis.
(J Heart Valve Dis, 2010-11)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates mitral stenosis, with a subset of these patients exhibiting pressures well in excess of their mitral valve hemodynamics. The prevalence of this ...
