Background

Methods

Consecutive patients diagnosed with TA and PH at a large referral cardiovascular center between January 2010 and April 2022 were included in this cohort study. Patients were managed with PTPA or medications alone at the discretion of patients and doctors and in accordance with local practice guidelines. The primary outcome was all cause mortality. Heart failure classified by New York Heart Association and measures of right heart function were also analyzed.

Results

Among 154 patients with TA-PH included in this analysis, 88 of them had PTPA and 66 received medical treatment. Baseline characteristics were similar between the PTPA group and the medication group. During a median follow-up time of 43.8 months, all-cause death occurred in 7 (8.0%) patients in PTPA group and 27 (40.9%) in the medication group (hazard ratio [HR], 0.15; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.06-0.33; P<0.001). Patients received PTPA also had less severe heart failure symptoms and significantly improved right heart function. Four patients in the PTPA group had intraoperative hemoptysis and no perioperative death was observed.

Conclusion

PTPA was associated with significantly reduced risk of death and improved heart function as compared with medication alone for patients with TA-PH. PTPA seemed to be a promising alteration for TA-PH patients.
