Agenda

  • Harm Jan Bogaard // Age-dependent prevalence of PH in the general population
  • Serge Adnot // Senescence mechanisms and pulmonary vascular aging

  • Stephen Archer // Genetics and epigenetics in age-related PH
  • Samara Jansen // Right heart catheterization is underused in elderly patients suspected of pulmonary hypertension

Poll results

Start of webinar poll

1. Talk 1: The increasing prevalence of PH in the elderly primarily reflects an increasing prevalence of group 2 and 3 PH and is therefore of little relevance to treatment in the expert centers

Agree - 46%

Disagree - 54%

 

2. Talk 2: Senescent cells exert a deleterious influence on development of pulmonary hypertension

Agree - 92%

Disagree - 8%

 

3. Talk 3: Does metabolic syndrome lead to age-related PH?

Yes - 96%

No - 4%

 

4. N/A

 

5. Talk 5: Performing a RHC in incident PH patient > 65 years old could reveal more treatable pre-capillary PH?

Agree - 92%

Disagree - 8%
