[http://erj.ersjournals.com/content/48/suppl_60/PA2425 – In patients with systemic sclerosis a ratio between Forced-Vital-Capacity (FVC) and diffusing capacity of carbon-monoxide (DLCO, FCV%/DLCO%) >1.5 could be a predictor of pulmonary hypertension (PH). The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate whether this index could be used in patients with PH, regardless of etiology.]
