          Abstract

          Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a fundamental investigation for the noninvasive assessment of pulmonary hemodynamics and right heart function. The aim of this study was to assess the correlation and agreement of Doppler calculation of right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP) and pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) using "chin" and "beard" measurements of tricuspid regurgitant velocity (TRVmax ), with invasive pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) and PVR.
