  1. 1. Pulmonary hypertension. Clinical and pathophysiological studies

    Author : Nedim Selimovic; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pulmonary hypertension; Echocardiography; Right heart catheterisation; Pulmonary vascular resistance; Pulmonary function tests; Lung transplantation; Mortality on the waiting list; Vascular remodelling; Growth substances; Inflammation; Endothelin;

    Abstract : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common abnormality, most often associated with various cardiopulmonary diseases. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating pulmonary vascular disease characterised by the proliferation of endothelial, smooth-muscle cells and fibroblasts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vardenafil and methylarginines in pulmonary hypertension

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anna Sandqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vardenafil; pulmonary hypertension; pharmacokinetics; haemodynamics; right heart catheterization; adenosine; dimethylarginines; phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors; endothelin receptor antagonists; klinisk farmakologi; Clinical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Background: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare condition characterized by endothelial dysfunction and vascular remodelling, leading to increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and right ventricular heart failure. Endothelial dysfunction is associated with an imbalance between vasoconstrictor compounds, such as endothelin and thromboxane A2, and vasodilator compounds, such as prostacyclin and nitric oxide (NO).

  3. 3. Pulmonary Hypertension and the Nitric Oxide System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dan Henrohn; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pulmonary hypertension; nitric oxide; ADMA; arginine; nitrate; nitrite; vardenafil; beetroot juice; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a pathophysiological state associated with several medical conditions, leading to progressive rise in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and right ventricular failure. The clinical PH classification encompasses five main World Health Organization (WHO) groups; pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), PH due to left heart disease, PH due to lung diseases and/or hypoxia, chronic thromboembolic PH, and PH with unclear multifactorial mechanisms.

  4. 4. Vascular remodeling in pulmonary hypertension

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Ya-Ting Chang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a progressive obliterative vasculopathy with multifactorial etiology and high mortality rate. Endothelial dysfunction, excessive vascular remodeling, inflammation and in situ thrombosis contribute to increased vascular resistance and gradual occlusion of pulmonary vessels. READ MORE

  5. 5. In the hands of ohm hemodynamic aspects in pulmonary hypertension

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Erik Tossavainen; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Congestive heart failure (CHF) is one of the most challenging diseases in terms of health care demand and mortality, in the western world. Despite major breakthroughs in the fields of diagnosis and treatment over the three last decades, the management of CHF still remains challenging. READ MORE
