Cardiovascular magnetic resonance-derived left ventricular intraventricular pressure gradients among patients with precapillary pulmonary hypertension
Precapillary pulmonary hypertension (pPH) affects left ventricular (LV) function by ventricular interdependence.
The aim of their study is to evaluate LA strain and LV-IVPGs from cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) cines in pPH patients.
The show that pPH impacts LV function by altering diastolic function, demonstrated by an impairment of LA phasic function and LV-IVPG analysis.
These parameters could therefore potentially be used as early markers for LV functional decline in pPH patients.
