A Right Ventricular (RV) Diastolic Impairment is Common in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) and is Associated with Other Target-Organ Damage.

 

RV is commonly affected in SSc with predominant impaired diastolic function and several factors, including primary heart, lung vascular disease and pulmonary hypertension, contribute to such impairment. Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism, 07/07/2015. (Also see Cardiac (Heart) Involvement)
