Summary: 
Obesity-associated restrictive cardiomyopathy. Haemodynamic evaluation of an obese individual revealed a mean right atrial pressure of 18 mmHg, pulmonary arterial pressure (Ppa) of 55/28 mmHg (mean 37 mmHg) and mean pulmonary capillary wedge pressure of 19 mmHg. The transpulmonary gradient was mildly elevated at 18 mmHg. The right atrial pressure is increased out of proportion to the Ppa. The simultaneous right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) pressure tracings reveal close tracking of the diastolic pressure in both ventricles, changes consistent with restrictive physiology. The patient had preserved RV and LV systolic function determined by echocardiography. The patient’s cardiac rhythm was atrial fibrillation. a) Right atrial pressure; b) Ppa; c) RV/LV pressure.
