Connective Tissue Disease Associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in the Modern Treatment Era.

Survival in SSc-PAH in the modern treatment era is better than in historical series. A significant proportion of patients with mild functional impairment or exercise-induced SSc-PAH have evidence of disease progression. Survival in patients with respiratory disease associated pulmonary hypertension is inferior. R. Condliffe. Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med. October, 2008. (Also see: Connective Tissue Disease and PAH)
