Özet

Objective: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) may occur in Takayasu arteritis (TA), mostly due to pulmonary arteritis, but also due to left heart disease and/or chronic thromboembolism (CTE). Using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), we investigated the frequency of PH caused by pulmonary arteritis.
