CONCLUSION: This large prospective series of previously nonscreened HHT patients identified a subgroup at risk of liver involvement (patients with abnormal liver biology and ACVRL1 mutations) and a subgroup with a higher cardiac index: future studies will show whether such patients would benefit from systematic DS screening and long-term cardiac surveillance.
