Pulmonary heart disease

Common Name(s)

Pulmonary heart disease

Pulmonary heart disease results from lung disorders that cause high blood pressure within the lungs. Normally blood flows from the heart, into the lungs, back to the heart, and then out to the rest of the body. Certain lung conditions can cause the blood pressure within the lungs to be abnormally high. This pressure causes the right side of the heart to work harder, which can injure and tire out the heart muscle. When the heart muscle tires out, this is called “heart failure”. Pulmonary heart disease is fairly rare and those who have it also have a lung disorder. Pulmonary heart disease can be diagnosed by a physician using imaging tests and various studies of heart function. Pulmonary heart disease is usually treated by addressing underlying causes. Certain medications and use of oxygen may also help to slow the progression of the disease.

Critical decision of operability in congenital heart disease patient with severe pulmonary hypertension.
 

Author(s): Raja Joshi, Rajat Kalra, Neeraj Kumar, Neeraj Aggarwal, Reena K Joshi, Mridul Aggarwal, Rakesh Pandey

Journal: Ann Card Anaesth. ;19(4):744-746.

 

Repair of congenital heart disease in the presence of high pulmonary pressure has always been a contentious issue. Pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is considered important for establishing operability in these patients. However, PVR estimation is not always accurate and cannot ...

'End-stage' heart failure therapy: potential lessons from congenital heart disease: from pulmonary artery banding and interatrial communication to parallel circulation.
 

Author(s): Dietmar Schranz, Hakan Akintuerk, Norbert F Voelkel

Journal: Heart. 2017 Feb;103(4):262-267.

 

The final therapy of 'end-stage heart failure' is orthotopic heart, lung or heart-lung transplantation. However, these options are not available for many patients worldwide. Therefore, novel therapeutical strategies are needed. Based on pathophysiological insights regarding (1) the ...
