PURPOSE: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is reported to occur predominantly in patients with limited scleroderma while esophageal dysmotility is more common in diffuse scleroderma. The relation between mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) and esophageal dilatation in scleroderma-associated pulmonary hypertension (Scl-PH) has not been studied. The objective of the study was to determine the relation between esophageal diameter with mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) and pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) respectively in Scl-PAH patients.
