Abstract

Assessments of general quality of life (QoL) and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) are increasingly important in the care of patients with chronic diseases including pulmonary arterial and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension and are under consideration as important endpoint of clinical trials and drug registration. The assessment of quality of life is not trivial. This review outlines the assets and pitfalls of general aspects of HRQOL and instruments used in PH.
