Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a debilitating disease that affects millions of Americans. Most research to date has focused on the deleterious effects of PH within the small vessels of the lungs that determine resistance. A relatively recent focus of PH is on the large pulmonary arteries (PAs) that provide compliance. Loss of compliance in these arteries, or arterial stiffening, is an excellent predictor of mortality in PH [1], which is most often caused by right ventricular (RV) hypertrophy and failure [2].
