Exercise-induced increase of the pulmonary arterial pressure may be an early sign of pulmonary arterial hypertension. It has been shown that patients with normal pulmonary arterial pressur...
The early detection of pulmonary arterial hypertension may help to improve prognosis of the disease. It is assumed that in the early stages of pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary ar...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which diet and exercise may improve PAH through the modulation of insulin sensitivity. The central hypothesis is that dysregulated...
The purpose of this study is to determine if treating patients suffering from moderate to severe pulmonary arterial hypertension with BSF 208075 will improve the patients' ability to exerc...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) can result in right ventricular failure and death. Anakinra has been used in patients with left sided heart failure, and the present study looks to de...
The latest pulmonary hypertension (PH) guidelines define therapeutic goals in terms of symptoms, exercise capacity, and haemodynamics for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and recomm...
Bosentan therapy has been recommended for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and might be beneficial for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). We aimed to evaluate the specific eff...
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 is a multifactorial disease characterized by vasoconstriction, vascular remodeling, inflammation and thrombosis. Although an increasing number of research confirmed tha...
Pulmonary hypertension is common (25-90%) in chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPDs). Severe pulmonary hypertension, however, is quite rare (1-3%). The term 'out of proportion' pulmonary hypert...
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.
