RESULTS: RV end-diastolic area, FAC, and RVFWS were significantly impaired in patients with PE (P < .001), with no significant differences in other clinical variables. In matched patients, receiver operating characteristic curve analysis revealed that RVFWS had significantly better discriminative power than the McConnell sign (P = .02), with a cutoff of -17.9%, sensitivity of 87.5%, specificity of 62.5%, and an area under the curve of 0.76. Sequential logistic regression demonstrated an incremental and independent benefit of using RVFWS to predict acute PE versus chronic PAH (P = .01). Observer concordance was superior for RVFWS compared with FAC (P < .01).
CONCLUSIONS: RVFWS is more predictive than RV end-diastolic area and less variable than FAC in distinguishing acute from chronic RV pressure overload. RVFWS adds incremental and independent information to standard measures of RV function in assessing the acuity of pulmonary hypertension.
