A pulmonary artery that is 31 mm and aortic artery is 3.7 and a borderline enlargement heart is that classified as pulmonary arterial hypertension?
No. Need RVSP. To diagnose pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), you need to have (1) a description of symptoms that you experience that is consistent with PAH, and (2) a measurement or estimate of the pulmonary arterial pressure - either by echocardiogram or by Swan-Ganz (right heart) catheterization. Only after a doctor has obtained this information can you diagnose PAH. Use HealthTap Prime to discuss.
