A case of pulmonary veno-occlusive disease in a 17-year-old Indian man appears to be the first case reported from Asia. Primary pulmonary hypertension was diagnosed on the basis of clinical and catheter data. The patient died shortly after catheterization. Histology revealed pulmonary veno-occlusive disease as a cause of pulmonary hypertension.

    Background: Longitudinal wall motion of the right ventricle (RV), generally quantified as tricuspid annular systolic excursion (TAPSE), has been well studied in pulmonary hypertension (PH). In contrast, transverse wall motion has been examined less. Therefore, the aim of this study was to...
