Further study details as provided by Actelion:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the clinical course in a cohort of adult patients with repaired CHD at risk for developing PAH [ Time Frame: screening (visit 1) through end of study (3 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    outcome measure: clinical outcomes: Assessment of function status, medications, and laboratory results, as well as an evaluation of medical history, physical examination, ECG, and echocardiography, in adult congenital heart disease patients at risk for pulmonary hypertension.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the clinical outcomes in a cohort of adult patients with repaired CHD at risk for developing PAH [ Time Frame: screening (visit 1) through end of study (3 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    outcome measure: clinical rate: To assess the rate of newly diagnosed pulmonary arterial hypertension in a cohort of adults with repaired congenital heart disease at risk for pulmonary arterial hypertension. To also compare clinical outcomes in patients who do and do not meet prespecified echocardiography criteria for suspected pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Estimated Enrollment: 800

adult CHD patients meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria may be enrolled


Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male and female adults (≥ 18 years of age)
  2. Patients with documented history (at least one year) of an isolated, repaired congenital heart defect such as ASD, VSD, PDA, AVC (AVSD)
  3. History of a large defect prior to closure as evidenced by any one of the following:

    • Size of: ASD > 2 cm; VSD > 1 cm; PDA > 0.6 cm
    • Shunt 2:1 or greater
    • Pre-operative PH (PAS > 40 mmHg) or documented shunt- related heart failure (radiographic evidence)
    • Pre-operative atrial fibrillation or flutter
  4. High risk features (any one the following):

    • Age > 40 years
    • Later surgical repair:

1. ≥ 2 years of age for PDA or VSD 2. ≥ 1 year of age for AVC 3. ≥ 10 years of age for ASD

  • sinus venosus defect
  • primum defect
  • WHO functional class > 1
  • atrial fibrillation or flutter 5. Echocardiographic evidence of high risk features. Any one of the following:
  • Degree of TR that is mild or greater
  • Right ventricular (RV) systolic dysfunction
  • Evidence of RV dilatation: Any one of the following:

    1. Evidence of RV dilation by general, qualitative assessment
    2. RV end diastolic diameter > 3.2 cm on apical 4 chamber view at the tips of the tricuspid valve
    3. RV to LV ratio at end-diastole > 0.6 (RV and LV end diastolic dimensions measured from apical 4 chamber view, 1 cm apical of the respective valve annuli)
  • Any abnormality in the motion of the inter-ventricular septum 6. Ability and desire to execute the consent for follow up

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Poor mental function, drug or substance (e.g., alcohol) abuse, or unstable psychiatric illness, which, in the opinion of the investigator, may interfere with optimal participation in the study
  2. Diagnosis of PAH (defined as RHC demonstrating mPAP ≥ 25 mm Hg and PCWP ≤ 15 and PVR > 3 WU or PVR (indexed) > 4 WU or treatment with PAH specific therapy) after surgical repair and prior to visit 1.
  3. Prior inclusion in this registry.
