Carbon Monoxide Diffusing Capacity (DLCO) Correlates With Functional Pulmonary Vascular Surface Area In Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) From Connective Tissue Disease (CTD) . This is the first demonstration that the reduction in DLCO in PAH-CTD is at least in part related to loss of functional capillary surface area, and is proportional to its severity. D.
