Sammanfattning : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common abnormality, most often associated with various cardiopulmonary diseases. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating pulmonary vascular disease characterised by the proliferation of endothelial, smooth-muscle cells and fibroblasts. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a pathophysiological state associated with several medical conditions, leading to progressive rise in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and right ventricular failure. The clinical PH classification encompasses five main World Health Organization (WHO) groups; pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), PH due to left heart disease, PH due to lung diseases and/or hypoxia, chronic thromboembolic PH, and PH with unclear multifactorial mechanisms.

3. Plasma biomarkers in pulmonary arterial hypertension diagnosis, treatment response and risk stratification - utilizing Lund Cardio Pulmonary Register
Sammanfattning : .... LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Pulmonary hypertension is a severe condition, leading to right heart dysfunction and preterm death. For pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a disease group in which the primary pathology resides within the pulmonary pre-capillary vessels, several specific therapies are in clinical use, but unfortunately the prognosis is still grim.

5. Endothelin in the pulmonary circulation with special reference to hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction
Sammanfattning : Endothelin in the pulmonary circulation with special reference to hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction Peter Holm A number of substances originating from the pulmonary endothelium have recently been found to be involved in the regulation of pulmonary vascular tone. Accumulating evidence suggests that endothelial dysfunction contributes to pulmonary hypertension, an important clinical problem often associated with hypoxemia. LÄS MER
