Summary

The Working Group Leaders and Nucleus members worked with the leadership of the ISHLT Pulmonary Hypertension Council to develop a fantastic session on Pulmonary Hypertension in Left Heart Disease.

Left, Right, and Together, the Facts and Future of PH-LHD

The session is on Wednesday, April 27th at 10:15 am.  It will involve controversial topics, clinical cases, and panel discussion. Please find below details of the session.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016, 10:15 am - 12:15 pm

Marriott Wardman Park, Salon 1

Co-Chair: Stavros Konstantinides, MD, PhD, FESC

Co-Chair: Mardi Gomberg-Maitland, MD

10:15 AM – 10:35 AM

PH- Left Heart Disease: Defining Group 2 PH

Irene Lang, MD, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria

Description: This will be an overview to set the stage for the entire session. The epidemiology, definition of PH-Group 2, pathophysiology, and diagnostics will be discussed.

10:35 AM – 10:55 AM

Is All Heart Failure the Same on the Pulmonary Circulation, and How Does It Impact Survival?

Nazzareno Galiè, MD, Bologna University Hospital, Bologna, Italy

Description: Discussion of all causes PH LHD: obstruction, congenital etc and its effects on the pulmonary circulation. Discuss the prognosis of the different types and perhaps if the survival is dependent on its vascular effects. Discuss how this is seen diagnostically.

10:55 AM – 11:15 AM

Monitoring and Therapeutic Options for Pulmonary Hypertension in Left Heart Disease

Raymond L. Benza, MD, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Description: Discussion of current/future therapies and monitoring of PH/LHD: cardiomems, oral therapies, and potential mechanical support.

11:15 AM – 11:35 AM

Provocative Testing in Pulmonary Hypertension in Left Heart Disease

Robert Naeije, MD, Free University of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium

Description: Dr. Naeije will use a case based approach to discuss the importance of provocative testing in selected patient with suspected PH-LHD. Specifically, he will discuss the roles of volume loading and exercise as part of his presentation.

11:35 AM – 11:43 AM

DEBATE: Diastolic Pulmonary Gradient is a Marker of Pulmonary Vasculopathy in Pulmonary Hypertension in Left Heart Disease (PRO)

Jean-Luc Vachiery, MD, Erasme University Hospital - ULB, Brussels, Belgium

Description: Give the evidence to support that the diastolic pulmonary gradient is a marker of pulmonary vasculopathy in pulmonary hypertension from left heart disease.

11:43 AM – 11:51 AM

DEBATE: Diastolic Pulmonary Gradient is a Marker of Pulmonary Vasculopathy in Pulmonary Hypertension in Left Heart Disease (CON)

Stephan Rosenkranz, MD, Herzzentrum der Universität zu Köln, Cologne, Germany

Description: Provide the evidence that DPG is not a marker of pulmonary vasculopathy in PH-left heart disease.

11:51 AM – 11:53 AM

DEBATE REBUTTAL (PRO)

Jean-Luc Vachiery, MD, Erasme University Hospital - ULB, Brussels, Belgium

11:53 AM – 11:55 AM

DEBATE REBUTTAL (CON)

11:55 AM – 12:00 PM

A Challenging Case of Pulmonary Hypertension

Myung H. Park, MD, Houston Methodist, Houston, TX, USA

Description: The speaker will select a clinical case that will highlight the difficulties in differentiating the types of PH.

12:00 PM – 12: 15 PM

Panel Discussion

Description: The best diagnostic and therapeutic strategies from the above case will be discussed by the ISHLT/ESC session speakers and chairs.
