pulmonary aterial hypertension

Sara Simeoni, Antonio Puccetti, Marco Chilosi, Elisa Tinazzi, Daniele Prati, Roberto Corrocher, Claudio Lunardi
We describe the case of a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) complicated by severe pulmonary aterial hypertension (PAH); only seven cases have been reported on this association so far, and PAH seems to be related to the vascular involvement of neurofibromatosis. The histology of our patient's lung tissue showed thickening of arteries and veins by medial and/or intimal hypertrophy and fibrosis. In order to exclude a familiar PAH, the analysis of the bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 gene was carried out, but no mutations were found...

The objective of this study was to determine the long-term survival pattern and variables affecting long-term survival and complications occurring during follow-up of patients with Eisenmenger syndrome. A retrospective study of patients diagnosed with Eisenmenger syndrome were followed up. A tertiary care centre was used and it provided superspeciality services in various disciplines. The subjects included 201 patients with Eisenmenger syndrome--diagnosed by a combination of echocardiography and a peripheral arterial oxygen saturation study and/or cardiac catheterisation with or without angiocardiography--worked up and followed up for variable duration over a period of 16 years from 1976 to 1992...

Hemodynamic measurements were obtained before and after 30 minutes of saralasin infusion in 26 fasting adults with hypertension (25 men and 1 woman). Nine showed a depressor response with a decrease in mean intaarterial pressure greater than 20 mm Hg. Ten were nonresponders and seven had an agonistic response with an increase in mean arterial pressure of greater than 10 mm Hg. Heart rate, pulmonary arterial and wedge pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance were nearly identical in the three groups and remained unchanged...
