Early Recognition of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Myelodysplastic and Myeloproliferative Diseases

Myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative Disease represent conditions with increased risk for pulmonary hypertension. However, the exact prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in these conditions is not known. The effects of pulmonary hypertension on the clinical picture and the symptoms of patients in these conditions needs also further exploration. This exploratory study is designed to describe the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in the population with such hematologic disea...

Riociguat Versus Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty in Non-operable Chronic thromboEmbolic Pulmonary Hypertension

"Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a severe form of pulmonary hypertension characterized by obstruction of the pulmonary vasculature by residual organized thrombi, leading to increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), progressive pulmonary hypertension, and right failure. In patients deemed operable, pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is the gold standard treatment and is the only potentially curative treatment. However, some patients are ineligible for ...

Bosentan Effects in Inoperable Forms of Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

The present trial investigates a possible use of oral bosentan, which is currently approved for the treatment of symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), to patients suffering from inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) because of (i) peripheral localization of thrombotic material or (ii) persistent or recurrent pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary endarterectomy.

The study evaluates the technique of non-drug treatment of residual pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy.

Assessment of Blood Coagulation Disorders in Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension

The objective of the present study is to assess blood coagulation disorders in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. The investigators aim to evaluate any possible coagulation abnormalities related to the patients' primary disease and any possible effects the pulmonary hypertension- specific therapy may have on hemostasis.

Repeatability of OCT and IV-US in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

To assess the correlation between pulmonary IV-OCT and pulmonary IV-US measurements and standard PAH clinical measures of disease progression and the relative sensitivity of the techniques to change.

Longitudinal Study to Identify Predictive Factors of Post-thrombotic Pulmonary Hypertension

The current data on the incidence of pulmonary hypertension (PH) are very variable, depending on the different studies designs. There are no data on the prognostic of PH in patients with asymptomatic pulmonary thromboembolisms (PT), neither paucisymptomatic PH, in which without a prospective follow-up would be underdiagnosed. We thought that the prognosis of both clinical forms (PT with or without symptoms) would be similar. The objective of this study is know the real inciden...

The Early Recognition of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

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 arterial pressure values may be normal at rest, but the remodelling of small arteries leads to stiffening resulting in increased pulmonary arterial pressure during exercise. In the present study we investigate patients with risk factors for pulmonary arterial hypertension (e.g. connective tissue...

Inhaled Iloprost in the Treatment of Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension up to 4 Years

This is an open-label, uncontrolled, prospective long-term observation of Specific Drug in the treatment of patients with pulmonary hypertension up to 4 years. 160 patients with primary (idiopathic and familial) pulmonary hypertension (PH) or pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) due to scleroderma with New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class and exercise capacity, defined as class III and IV planned to enroll. Efficacy, safety and tolerability of the drug and the su...

Oral Sildenafil and Intravenous Milrinone on Postoperative Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a consequence of an increase in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), pulmonary blood flow, pulmonary venous pressure, or a combination of these elements. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a frequent complication of congenital heart disease, particularly in patients with systemic-to-pulmonary shunts. Persistent exposure o f the pulmonary vasculature to increased blood flow and pressure may result in vascular remodeling and dysfunction. This leads ...

Evaluation of FDG Uptake and Pulmonary Perfusion by Positron Emission Tomography in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Before and After Treatment With Ambrisentan

We are doing this research study to find out how blood flow changes in the lungs of people with pulmonary hypertension before and after treatment with ambrisentan (sold under the brand name Letairis). We hope that knowing about these differences will help us to better understand pulmonary hypertension and find new ways to diagnose it earlier.

Trial of Iloprost in Pulmonary Hypertension Secondary to Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis(IPF) is chronic progressive fibrosing lung disease of unknown cause. There is no effective therapy yet for this disease and the mean survival in most reports is about 3 years after the diagnosis. Because of the stiff fibrosis of the lung, pulmonary hypertension is the late complication of IPF and its development heralds a very poor outcome of the patients. For the primary pulmonary hypertension, recently the effective drugs have been available. How...

Early Therapy of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

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 pressure at rest but elevated pulmonary arterial pressure during exercise have a decreased exercise-capacity and may have a worse prognosis compared to patients with normal pulmonary arterial pressure values at rest and during exercise. According to the currently used definition pulmonary hypertensio...

Sildenafil in Hemodialysis Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension

Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor that can exert a nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation effect, so it's considered one of the preferred agents especially in hypoxia induced pulmonary hypertension, can achieve pulmonary vasodilation by enhancing sustained levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and nitric oxide. Despite the potential burden of pulmonary hypertension in hemodialysis patients, such agent like sildenafil has limited studies about optimum dose, safe...

Endtidal Carbon Dioxide for Earlier Detection of Pulmonary Hypertension

Measurement of the endtidal carbon dioxide by capnography to exclude or to ensure the diagnosis pulmonary hypertension. The aim of the study is to obtain an endtidal carbon dioxide cut-off value for the diagnostic algorithm for pulmonary hypertension as an easily measurable and cheap diagnostic tool in patients with suspicion of pulmonary hypertension.

Electronic Activity Level Monitoring Pilot in Pulmonary Hypertension

Evaluate the correlation between activity level (monitored by Fitbit Flex remote activity tracker) and 6-minute walk distance (6MWD) (performed by investigator) in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) or Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) over 6 months in routine clinical practice settings.

Epidemiology and Pathogenesis of HIV-Associated Pulmonary Hypertension

The purpose of this study is to describe the epidemiology of pulmonary hypertension in individuals with HIV infection and to investigate its pathogenesis. We propose to conduct a prospective observational cohort study to determine the association between highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and viral suppression in HIV-infected patients who have been identified to have pre-clinical pulmonary hypertension (Aim 1). In addition, we will investigate the mechanistic role of ...

Effects of Cardiorespiratory Rehabilitation on the Right Ventricle in Pulmonary Hypertension

Clinical improvement has been demonstrated after cardiorespiratory rehabilitation in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
