The role of decreased pulmonary arterial (PA) compliance (C), equivalent to increased PA stiffness (1/C) as a critical determinant of right ventricular dysfunction and prognosis has been emphasized in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a multifactorial disease characterized by vasoconstriction, vascular remodeling, inflammation and thrombosis. Although an increasing number of research confirmed that pulmonary artery endothelial cells, pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells as well as platelets have a role in the pulmonary arterial hypertension pathogenesis, it is still unclear what integrates these factors. In this paper, we review the evidence that platelets through releasing a large variety of chemokines...
Although pulmonary arterial remolding in pulmonary hypertension (PH) changes the mechanical properties of the pulmonary artery, most clinical studies have focused on static mechanical properties (resistance), and dynamic mechanical properties (compliance) have not attracted much attention. As arterial compliance plays a significant role in determining afterload of the right ventricle, we evaluated how PH changes the dynamic mechanical properties of the pulmonary artery using high-resolution, wideband input ...
Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) consisting of hereditary pulmonary arterial hypertension and idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension is an obstructive pulmonary hypertension caused by primary pulmonary artery hyperplasia. Both environmental and genetic factors are involved in the pathogenesis of PPH. Genes associated with TGF-β signaling pathway including BMPR2, ALK1, ENG, SMAD8 and other genes including NFU1, CAV1, KCNK3 and TopBPl have been associated with PPH. In this review, the function and me...
Upregulation of the immune system is regarded to play an important role in the etiopathobiology of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). To the best of our knowledge, neopterin (NP) has never been investigated in patients with PAH and CTEPH.
Methamphetamine is a highly addictive drug originally developed for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. At present, the epidemic rise of illicit methamphetamine use has increased the number of patients living with medical complications. Our group has recently identified a definite association between methamphetamine use and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a life-threatening disease characterized by occlusive vasculopathy and progressive right heart failure. This review will discuss the evide...
- Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) is a complication of pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (PLCH); however, the pathogenesis remains largely unknown. Few studies have evaluated histopathologic changes in pulmonary arteries (PAs) of patients with PLCH; systematic quantification of arterial remodeling has yet to be undertaken.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is associated with increased levels of circulating growth factors and corresponding receptors, such as PDGF, FGF and VEGF. Nintedanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting primarily these receptors, is approved for the treatment of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Our objective was to examine the effect of nintedanib on proliferation of human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells (MVEC) and assess its effects in rats with advanced experimental pulmonary...
To detect pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) at any early stages is a promising approach to optimize the outcome.
This study aims to assess the long-term survival of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) patients followed in a Portuguese pulmonary hypertension (PH) referral center.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by the apoptosis resistance and hyperproliferation of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs). Its pathogenesis has not been revealed. Here, we carried out experiments to investigate the functions of miR-140-5p and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α).
Periodic risk stratification is recommended for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The purpose of this article is to review the available risk stratification tools in PAH.
Involvement of right-sided heart chambers (RSHC) in patients infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is common and is usually attributed to pulmonary arterial or venous hypertension. However, myocardial involvement in patients with HIV is also common and might affect RSHC even in the absence of overt pulmonary hypertension (PH). Our aim was to define morphologic and functional alterations in RSHC in patients with HIV and without pulmonary hypertension (PH).
In this case report, we present a patient with mediastinal fibrosis. The mass lesion was expanding from the mediastinum to the cervical region and surrounding the major vascular structures. The patient has symptomatic dyspnea at rest and pulmonary hypertension due to stenosis of the bilateral main pulmonary arteries (PA). To decrease pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) and improve blood flow to the lungs, grafting from the pulmonary trunk to the bilateral interlobar pulmonary arteries under cardiopulmonary bypa...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a syndrome caused by restricted blood flow in the pulmonary circulation, which results in a poor patient prognosis. The serotonin (5-HT), TRPC1 (Transient receptor potencial channel 1), TRPC6 (Transient receptor potencial channel 6), calcineurin A, and NFATc3 (an isoform of nuclear factor of activated T-cells family) are involved in cell proliferation and hypertrophy and the crosstalk between these molecules may play an essential role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is caused by an imbalance of pulmonary vasoconstriction and vasodilation. Pulmonary arteriolar remodeling is a primary pathological change and proliferation of pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PASMC) is an important pathological basis for pulmonary arteriolar remodeling. Vasoactive substances, such as 5-HT, may play a role in proliferation of PASMC via unknown mechanisms. In vitro experiments with PASMC showed that the TRPC channel inhibitor SKF96365 inhibited the effe...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a life-threatening disease that leads to progressive pulmonary hypertension, right heart failure and death. Parenteral prostaglandins, including treprostinil, a prostacyclin analogue, represent the most effective medical treatment for severe PAH. We investigated the effect of treprostinil on established severe PAH and underlying mechanisms using the rat SU5416 (SU, a vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 inhibitor)-chronic hypoxia (Hx) model of PAH.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relative value of baseline and follow-up echocardiographic assessment of pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) and right ventricular (RV) function in assessing response to vasodilator therapy in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). The purpose of this study was to assess long-term outcomes in patients with SSc-PAH.
Pericardial effusion in chronic hypoxemic lung diseases, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea syndrome, usually occurs after the development of severe pulmonary arterial hypertension. However, data about the frequency of pericardial effusions in Obstructive Sleep Apnea syndrome without pulmonary arterial hypertension and/or daytime hypoxemia are still scarce, and their pathogenesis is unclear.
Right heart catheterization is commonly used to measure right ventricle hemodynamic parameters and is the gold standard for pulmonary arterial hypertension diagnosis; however, it is not suitable for patients' long-term follow-up. Non-invasive echocardiography and nuclear medicine have been applied to measure right ventricle anatomy and function, but the guidelines for the usefulness of clinical parameters remain to be established. The goal of this study is to identify reliable clinical parameters of right v...
This study aims to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying sphingosine kinase 1 (SphK1) inducing pulmonary vascular remodeling and resveratrol suppressing pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a complication of venous thromboembolism (VTE) resulting from non-dissolving thromboembolic in the pulmonary arteries. Previous observations indicate a higher prevalence of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with VTE and CTEPH. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the arterial stiffening assessed by pulse wave velocity (PWV), a marker of arterial stiffness, in CTEPH patients in comparison with a matched control gro...
The reversibility of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in congenital heart disease (CHD) is of great importance for the operability of CHD. Proteomics analysis found that transgelin was significantly up-regulated in the lung tissue of CHD-PAH patients, especially in the irreversible group. However, how exactly it participated in CHD-PAH development is unknown.
We discuss the currently available data on the use of the prostacyclin mimetic selexipag in children and adolescents with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Future indications may include transitioning from intravenous prostacyclin/prostacyclin analog to oral selexipag, and vice versa, or adding selexipag as a third oral PAH-targeted agent in children not responding well to dual PAH therapy.
