Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Isolated partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) has been implicated as a cause of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH); however this condition is often overlooked in the diagnostic ...
Effect of obesity on B-type natriuretic peptide levels in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
(Am J Cardiol, 2012-09-15)
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are lower in obese patients with left ventricular failure than in their comparably ill, leaner counterparts. The effect of obesity on BNP in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension ...
Response to inhaled nitric oxide predicts survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(J Card Fail, 2011-04)
OBJECTIVE: To examine the ability of vasodilator response to predict survival in a diverse cohort of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). PATIENTS & METHODS: A total of 214 consecutive treatment-naive patients referred ...
Association of anemia and long-term survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(Int J Cardiol, 2011-08-04)
BACKGROUND: Anemia is a marker of worsened clinical outcome in patients with heart failure from left ventricular dysfunction. Pulmonary hypertension often results in right ventricular dysfunction. Accordingly we sought to ...
Two Cases of Late Shone Syndrome With Pulmonary Hypertension: Heart-Lung Transplant or Valve Surgery?
(World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg, 2016-01)
Two cases of Shone syndrome with severe mitral and aortic valve problems and pulmonary hypertension were referred for heart-lung transplantation. Severely elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) was confirmed as was ...
Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis.
(J Heart Valve Dis, 2010-11)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates mitral stenosis, with a subset of these patients exhibiting pressures well in excess of their mitral valve hemodynamics. The prevalence of this ...
