Abstract

Undiagnosed elevation of PAs is common in patients with scleroderma. Noninvasive assessment of PAs can be performed accurately in most patients independent of clinical signs of pulmonary hypertension. If successful treatment strategies are identified, it may be possible to identify patients early in the development of pulmonary hypertension and intervene before significant end-organ damage occurs.
