Eligibility Criteria

Age 18 - 80 · All Participants · 7 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
in a patient with a diagnosis of Eisenmenger syndrome Within five years, a right heart catheterization demonstrating a mean pulmonary arterial pressure of ≥ 25 mmHg, occlusion pressure of ≤ 15 mmHg, and pulmonary vascular resistance of ≥ 3 wood units can diagnose Eisenmenger syndrome in a patient.
People who have had a right heart catheterization in the last five years and have a mean pulmonary arterial pressure of at least 25 mmHg and an occlusion pressure of 15-20 mmHg will be considered for this study if their pulmonary vascular resistance is at least 9 wood units and they are being treated with a medication specific to pulmonary hypertension.
The text states that the person can walk a distance of 50 meters on their own.
, any race This is an announcement for anyone who is male or female and is between the ages of 18 and 80
WHO Group 1 Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is a rare, life-threatening disorder in which the pressure in the pulmonary arteries is abnormally high
did not appear to alter the primary endpoint in the Phase 3 INOVA trial The study found that there was no significant difference in the primary endpoint between the group who received a stable dose of pulmonary vasodilators for 30 days prior to randomization and the group who did not.
