Abstract

Appropriate diagnosis and initiation of disease‐specific treatment is an important therapeutic goal in idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. We evaluated the prevalence and aetiology of moderate‐to‐severe pulmonary hypertension in a cohort of patients referred for inpatient echocardiography, with significant pulmonary hypertension documented in 4.6%. Pulmonary hypertension complicating left heart disease was the most common aetiology, with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension less frequent.
