Left atrial (LA) volume and N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide are associated with elevated pulmonary artery pressure in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). The aim of our study was to determine whether noninvasive biochemical and/or echocardiographic indices can predict the presence of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in these patients.
