Abstract

We performed a simultaneous Doppler and invasive study to validate the role of Doppler-derived peak pulmonary regurgitant velocity as a reliable noninvasive measure of pulmonary artery mean pressure. Assessment of right atrial pressure, as shown in this study, enhances the use of this Doppler parameter as a correlate of pulmonary artery mean pressure.
