Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function

To obtain best outcomes for patients through clinical and basic science research, and education

ESC Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function logo
The ESC Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function is an ever-expanding scientific community, composed of specialists with a multidisciplinary profile. Our interest, besides focusing on acute pulmonary embolism and pulmonary arterial hypertension, expands to other etiologies of pulmonary hypertension such as heart failure and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary vascular disease. Our main objective is to contribute to progress in basic science, translational and clinical research, and continuing medical education. We consider the interaction and collaboration with other working groups essential in order to complement and enrich our activity.
From here, we welcome and invite you to join us and participate in our scientific activities.
