PURPOSE: Echocardiography is the most common imaging modality for assessment of the right ventricle (RV) in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Echocardiographic parameters have been identified as independent risk factors for mortality in the Registry to Evaluate Early and Long-term PAH Disease Management (REVEAL) and other PAH cohorts. We sought to establish a simple and practical echocardiography-based scoring system that may predict mortality in PAH.
