Abstract

To the editor, In response to: Assessment of oxygenation after balloon pulmonary angioplasty for patients with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

We read with interest the study by Matsuoka et al. [1] reporting on the effects of balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) on tissue oxygenation. Despite an improvement in haemodynamics following BPA, the authors conclude that oxygenation, exercise-induced desaturation (EID) and exertional dyspnoea (ED) did not improve. However, further examination of the results, while accounting for exercise intensity, suggests that oxygenation and EID may have improved post-BPA.
