Objectives of this European Respiratory Society task force were to summarise current studies, to develop strategies for future research and to increase availability and awareness of exercise training for pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients. An evidence-based approach with clinical expertise of the task force members, based on both literature search and face-to-face meetings was conducted. The statement summarises current knowledge and open questions regarding clinical effects of exercise traini...

Abstract Objectives This study aims to assess the long-term survival of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) patients followed in a Portuguese pulmonary hypertension (PH) referral center. Methods We studied PAH and CTEPH patients diagnosed between January 2005 and December 2016. Cumulative survival was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Survival trends were compared over two periods (2005-2010 vs. 2011-2016). Results Of the 142 stu...

Abstract Background Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a heterogeneous, debilitating condition with highly relevant impact on functional capacity, quality of life, and life-expectancy. Objectives This study aims to provide long-term data on the Portuguese PH population, by characterising the clinical presentation, evolution, and outcomes of PH patients in a specialised referral centre. Methods Retrospective analysis of a cohort of 101 patients with pre-capillary PH (pcPH) referenced to an expert ter...

Background. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) impairment is common in pulmonary hypertension (PH), but its clinical predictors are not well established. This study aims to characterize the HRQoL of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and other precapillary forms of PH (pcPH) and to explore its clinical correlates. Materials and Methods. A cross-sectional, observational study of patients with documented PAH and other forms of pcPH. Patients completed two patient-reported outc...

Introduction: In addition to several pharmacodynamics advantages over bosentan, macitentan has once-a-day profile, less liver toxicity and drug interactions, and outcome data showing improved mortality and morbidity in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) patients. We aimed to examine the effect of switching bosentan to macitentan on clinical status of PAH patients. Methods and Results: We conducted a retrospective observational study in a cohort of 32 patients with PAH that transitioned from b...
