    1. Significant past clinical evidence or echocardiography of right heart failure.
    2. History of right heart catheterization showed that cardiac index ≤ 2 l/min/m2.
    3. Pulmonary hypertension, which needs to use EPoprostenol/ Treprostinil for parenteral treatment .

  11. Bleeding risk, including the following criterias:

    a. Predisposition to bleeding. b.Subjects need to the following treatments: i.Fibrinolysis, full-dose anticoagulation therapy(such as vitamin K antagonists, direct thrombin inhibitor, heparin, Hirudin ).

    ii. High dose antiplatelet therapy[Note: not prohibited to maintain equipment needed indwelling venous pathway prophylactic low dose of heparin or heparin fluid (e.g. enoxaparin, daily 4000 I.U. s.c.) and the prevention of the use of antiplatelet therapy (e.g. acetylsalicylic acid, until 325 mg/d, or other antiplatelet dose of 75 mg/d the same dose of clopidogrel, or treatment)].
