Impact of pulmonary fibrosis (PF) and elevated pulmonary pressures (PHT) on right ventricular (RV) function in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

SSc patients show impaired RV function and both pulmonary fibrosis and PHT are independently associated with RV dysfunction. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford),2016 Mar;55(3):504-12. (Also see Cardiac (Heart) Involvement and Pulmonary Hypertension)
