Prevalence of Elevated Pulmonary Arterial Pressures Measured by Echocardiography in a Multicenter Study of Patients with Systemic Sclerosis. Elevated pulmonary arterial pressures (PAP) are common in both limited and diffuse SSc disease, occurring in 21% of limited and 26% of diffuse SSc patients. A high index of suspicion is important and routine echocardiography in symptomatic patients may allow earlier diagnosis of PAH and intervention. J Rheumatol. 2005 July;32:1273-8.
