To the Editor We appreciate the study by Dahiya et al, attempting to improve non-invasive estimation of pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR).1 However, some points deserve a few comments. (1) The new formula (PVRc) compared with the previous one by Abbas et al2 (PVRe) includes E/e′ ratio, in order to take into account the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and estimate transpulmonary gradient better. E/e′ is a …
