The purpose

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease of the pulmonary vasculature leading to elevated pulmonary pressure and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction with heart failure. Measures of RV function are better predictors of mortality and long term outcomes than pulmonary vascular resistance. The interaction between RV function and the pulmonary circulation is not fully understood, but increased after load appears insufficient to explain right heart failure. Yet, all approved PAH therapies target vasodilation of the pulmonary vasculature to lower pressures
