    Pulmonary hypertension may develop whenever chronic obstruction of pulmonary arterial blood flow occurs. Although repeated pulmonary embolism is thought to be the usual underlying cause, there is little clinical evidence to support this theory. Studies of the pulmonary vascular endothelium have...

    The article discusses pulmonary hypertension after splenectomy. Chronic thromboembolic disease has been defined as "pulmonary hypertension caused by the absence of thrombus resolution after acute pulmonary embolism which has resulted in sustained obstruction of the pulmonary circulation." This...

    Unusual forms of pulmonary hypertension include pulmonary hypertension related to mediastinal fibrosis and the use of serotonergic drugs. Here, we describe a patient with diffuse mediastinal fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension while she was on dopamine agonist therapy. A young woman, who was...

    Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy offers a comparatively low surgical mortality rate with appropriate patient selection. However, the operative mortality in patients with high pulmonary vascular resistance or severe pulmonary hypertension and subsequent right ventricular failure is poor. We report...

    Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a disabling condition that is being increasingly recognised. It is unique as a cause of pulmonary hypertension in that it is surgically curable. We wish to highlight the importance of recognition and early referral of any patient who may...
