Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) has been increasingly recognized as a common source of elevated pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary hypertension. It is clear that development of pulmonary thromboemboli is the inciting event for this process, yet it remains unclear why some patients have persistent pulmonary artery occlusion(More)
1 Pregnant women are susceptible to severe pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) from influenza, which has been associated with increased fetal loss [1]. There is very little experience for the management of pregnant women with severe pneumonia and ARDS from avian influenza A (H7N9) virus, especially when complicated by intrauterine fetal(More)
Correspondence To the Editor: We would like to present Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) as a complication of H7N9 influenza virus infection. On January 22, 2014, a 57‑year‑old man with a history of rheumatoid arthritis was admitted to the hospital complaining of dyspnea and fever. Infection with influenza A (H7N9) virus was confirmed from a tracheal aspirate(More)
Pulmonary vascular remodeling and increased arterial wall stiffness are two major causes for the elevated pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary arterial pressure in patients and animals with pulmonary hypertension. Cellular copper (Cu) plays an important role in angiogenesis and extracellular matrix remodeling; increased Cu in vascular smooth muscle(More)
There are very few data regarding pathological changes in patients with severe pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) from avian influenza A (H7N9) virus. We present the case of a 73-year-old woman with a history of hypertension and prior cerebrovascular accident who was admitted to the hospital complaining of dyspnea, cough with scant(More)
