Clinical and haemodynamic evaluation of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension patients scheduled for pulmonary thromboendarterectomy: Is schistosomiasis hypertension an important confounding factor?
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2010)
INTRODUCTION: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is a disease affecting approximately 4,000 people per year in the United States. The incidence rate in Brazil, however, is unknown. The estimated survival for ...
Adrenomedullin induces pulmonary vasodilation but does not attenuate pulmonary hypertension in a sheep model of acute pulmonary embolism
(Elsevier B. V., 2015-10-15)
The pulmonary vasodilation induced by adrenomedullin may be beneficial in the acute pulmonary embolism (APE) setting. This study examined effects of adrenomedullin in sheep with microsphere-induced APE. Twenty four ...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) in chronic hemodialysis (CHD) patients is associated with inflammatory markers and volume overload

Treating Inflammation Associated with Pulmonary Hypertension: An Overview of the Literature
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) comprises five groups of serious clinical entities characterized by pulmonary artery vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling leading to right heart failure and death. In addition to vascular ...
Can we start to think about consensus-oriented clinical practices?

2-Aminoethyldiphenylborinate modiﬁes the pulmonary circulation in pulmonary hypertensive newborn lambs partially gestated at high altitude
(Amer Physiological Soc., 2016)
Calcium signaling through store-operated channels (SOC) is involved in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension. We determined whether a treatment with 2-aminoethyldiphenylborinate (2-APB), a compound with SOC blocker activity, ...
Fractal dimension in quantifying experimental-pulmonary-hypertension-induced cardiac dysfunction in rats
Background: Right-sided heart failure has high morbidity and mortality, and may be caused by pulmonary arterial hypertension. Fractal dimension is a differentiated and innovative method used in histological evaluations ...
Síndrome de Eisenmenger na gravidez
Eisenmenger's syndrome consists of pulmonary hypertension with a reversed or bidirectional shunt at the atrioventricular, or aortopulmonary level. Eisenmerger's syndrome in pregnancy is usually associated with high mortality ...
Hemodynamic effects of combined sildenafil and L-arginine during acute pulmonary embolism-induced pulmonary hypertension
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-11-07)
Sildenafil attenuates acute pulmonary embolism-induced pulmonary hypertension. However, the hemodynamic effects of sildenafil in combination with other vasodilators during acute pulmonary embolism have not been examined ...
