Although this value is slightly greater than the upper level of normal for resting mPAP (defined as 2 standard definitions above the mean or about 21 mmHg [4]), it has been utilized for selecting patients in nearly all randomized controlled trials on PAH and in PAH registries. It is currently unclear how to consider the values of mPAP between 21 and 24 mmHg, since this level of PA pressure elevation does not necessarily reflect the presence of a pathological state. It is possible that in some patients, the borderline level of elevated PAP represents an early phase of the disease.
