Reduced force of diaphragm muscle fibers in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension
American Journal of Physiology-lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology, 2016.
Patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) suffer from inspiratory muscle weakness. However, the pathophysiology of inspiratory muscle dysfunction in PH is unknown. We hypothesized that weakness of the diaphragm, the main inspiratory muscle, is an important contributor to inspiratory muscle dysfunction in PH patients. Our objective was to ...More
