Incidence of pulmonary hypertension (PHT) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and no pulmonary symptoms: is annual echocardiographic screening necessary?

 

The incidence of echocardiography-diagnosed PHT with SSc, and no pulmonary symptoms was low. Annual echocardiography is less beneficial among such patients; repeated echocardiography should instead be performed on those with a declining functional class. PubMed, J Clin Rheumatol, 2014 Aug;20(5):268-74. (Also see: Echocardiograms for Pulmonary Hypertension)
