Pulmonary Hypertension Association Registry
The PHA Registry (PHAR) is a national study about people who have pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). PHAR collects information from people with PAH and CTEPH who are cared for in participating PHA-accredited Pulmonary Hypertension Care Centers throughout the U.S. PHAR will determine how people with PAH and CTEPH are evaluated, tested, and treated, and will observe how well these participants do. The goal is to see if people with PH are treated according to recommended guidelines, and to see if there are certain factors that can lead to better or worse outcomes. ...
Pulmonary Hypertension Screening for Rheumatology Patients (SOPHIE)
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a serious and often fatal complication of connective tissue diseases including systemic sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus. It has been reported primarily from European series that the prevalence of PAH in patients with connective tissue diseases particularly systemic sclerosis is as high as 15-20%. However, given the paucity of medical literature in the area from Chinese population, the prevalence of PAH amongst Chinese patients with these conditions is largely unknown. Even worse, PAH is often undiagnosed amongst patients with connective tissue diseases due to the lack of awareness...
Pulmonary Vascular Disease Phenomics Program PVDOMICS
It is recognized that patients with various forms of heart and lung disease exhibit varying degrees of pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary vascular remodeling, and right ventricular dysfunction. The genetic, molecular, and cellular processes driving these phenomena are not well understood. Rapid advances in high throughput omic methodology, combined with powerful bioinformatics and network biology capability, have created the opportunity to conduct studies that broadly search for homologies and differences across the spectrum of disease states associated with pulmonary hypertension, and determinants of the spectrum of right ventricular...
Quality of Life Assessed With the PAH SYMPACT Questionnaire
Researchers are evaluating quality of life in pulmonary hypertension subjects using the Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension-Symptoms and Impact (PAH-SYMPACT) Questionnaire and assessing the questionnaires' performance with regard to relationship to other markers of disease severity, response to treatment, and outcome in a clinical practice setting.
Quantitative Dual Energy Computed Tomography in Pulmonary Hypertension
Pathophysiological mechanisms leading to pulmonary hypertension (PH) are complex. Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) can help us to study morphological alterations in patients with PH. These CT morphometrics are useful to predict the degree of PH severity at least in PH secondary to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We hypothesized that assessing lung perfusion using dual energy CT (DECT) can refine our knowledge on PH pathophysiology and help to predict PH severity irrespective of its etiology
Reducing Right Ventricular Failure in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (RELIEVE-PAH)
The objectives of the RELIEVE-PAH study are to obtain first-in-human experience with the study device in patients with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension, including evidence of initial safety, device performance and possible signals of clinical effectiveness.
Registration Study for Rare Type of Pulmonary Hypertension
The knowledge on the rare type of pulmonary hypertension which can not be explained by left heart disease, respiratory disease or congenital heart disease is very limited. Investigators aim to setup a national registration study for the rare type of pulmonary hypertension, to understand the natural history, survival, progression, genetic and environmental contributions to disease.
Registry for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease With Pulmonary Hypertension in China
Pulmonary hypertension is a common complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is reported that over half of COPD patients develop pulmonary hypertension. COPD and pulmonary hypertension may have pathological or genetics interactions so that patients having both disorders tend to have poor prognosis. Echocardiography is widely used to detect pulmonary hypertension, but it's not accurate enough. Therefore, high-quality data reflecting the prevalence, disease course and outcome of pulmonary hypertension in COPD is very limited in China. The aim of the study is to detect pulmonary hypertension with right heart ...
Registry for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease With Pulmonary Thromboembolism in China
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is closely related to venous thromboembolism (VTE). But it is difficult to identify VTE in COPD patients in clinical practice. Therefore, the prevalence data of PTE in COPD is limited. Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is an important factor effecting patients outcomes, but existing researches only have short follow-up time less than 1 year. This study aim to develop an early detection system of PTE in COPD and explore the disease course and prognosis.
Registry of Preterm Newborns With Severe Pulmonary Hypertension
The purpose of this prospective research registry is to collect data on treatment strategies and outcomes for premature newborns with severe pulmonary hypertension (PH).
