BACKGROUND: There are limited reports in the literature concerning right ventricular (RV) performance in patients with non end-stage idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) who exhibit mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension (PH).

METHODS: Twenty-two clinically stable patients with non-e...Expand abstract
