PULMONARY ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION IN CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASES

Abstract

The lecture considers the problem of one of the rare manifestations of systemic diseases (pulmonary arterial hypertension) and shows the need for early diagnosis, careful differential diagnosis, and verification of diagnosis, by applying invasive procedures to evaluate central hemodynamics. It gives a model for screening patients with systemic sclerosis, which simplifies the determination of indications for the use of diagnostic verification methods. Current approaches to drug therapy are described and the issues of better survival of patients with poor prognosis of this disorder are discussed
