Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To understand the rational of establishing a goal-oriented therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension management.
RECENT FINDINGS: During the last decades, the development of targeted therapies and the recognition of prognostic markers represented a major step for improving pulmonary arterial hypertension survival. Now, changing the strategy on using these compounds therapies might represent the best way to optimize treatment response.
SUMMARY: Prespecified goals with regular reassessment should be incorporated as the routine practice for pulmonary arterial hypertension management to provide the best available treatment, aiming to improve or maintain every patient in a clinical and functional status that reflects better long-term survival.
