SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease II

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: Classification of Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is based on predisposing conditions and hemodynamic characteristics, both of which have pathogenic and therapeutic implications. Multiple phenotypes of PH and comorbidities often serve to complicate the diagnosis and management. The response to treatment in PH patients can be challenging to assess, especially in the presence of comorbidities with overlapping symptoms. The Six Minute Walk Distance (6MWD) is a tool used to help objectify the exercise capacity and degree of symptoms in PH patients and monitor the response to treatment. However, the relationship between the 6MWD, clinically meaningful outcomes and hemodynamics is less well characterized. We sought to determine if there is a significant relationship between the Six Minute Walk Test (6MWD) and the mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) in patients with PH.
