It is possible that in some patients, the borderline level of elevated PAP represents an early phase of the disease. Specifically in patients within the scleroderma spectrum of disease, this mild increase in mPAP has been associated with a higher risk of developing PAH in the near future [5]. The need for an accurate determination of mPAP requires that right heart catheterization (RHC) be performed to ensure proper diagnosis, since noninvasive estimates are not reliable enough. Moreover, RHC allows the measurement of cardiac function, by means of cardiac output, as well as the determination of right- and left-sided filling pressures (right atrial and pulmonary artery occlusion pressures) [6].
