Together with its most common cause, an obstruction of the respiratory tract, the morbidity of chronic cor pulmonale — defined as adjustment of the right heart to chronic pulmonary hypertension caused by diseases of the lung and chest-wall [17,49,51] — is constantly on the increase 5,6,19,24,27,42,44,64]Moreover, the improved methods of treatment of pulmonary infections are resulting in the survival of an increasing number of patients until such time as their lung disease comes to affect the… Expand

A Clinical Consideration of Cor Pulmonale
TLDR
It is suggested that the name cor pulmonale always be coupled with the respolisible etiologic agent and encompass cardiac abniormalities stemming fromii any form of pulmonary dysfunetion. Expand
SUBACUTE COR PULMONALE
TLDR
The chronic type of cor pulmonale is of manifold etiology; the most important causes are mitral stenosis, extensive pulmonary fibrosis and marked emphysema secondary to asthma, chronic bronchitis or some other pulmonary disease. Expand
CIRCULATORY EFFECTS OF CHRONIC PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
TLDR
This study was undertaken in order to assess relationships between various physiologic factors in chronic pulmonary emphysema, the most common cause of car pulmonale. Expand
PROGNOSIS OF COR PULMONALE.
TLDR
A review of all patients admitted in recent years to the Massachusetts General Hospital with a diagnosis of chronic heart failure found several patients seen recently have had remarkably long periods of survival after the initial episode of heart failure. Expand
Subacute cor pulmonale. Report of four cases.
TLDR
As an underlying thrombophlebitis or phlebothrombosis may be responsible for the development of pulmonary embolization, one of the causes of subacute cor pulmonale, it appears reasonable to suggest that anticoagulants be administered as soon as the presence of this condition is suspected. Expand
Precipitation by pulmonary infection of acute anoxia, cardiac failure and respiratory acidosis in chronic pulmonary disease; pathogenesis and treatment.
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to present several cases of chronic pulmonary disease illustrating the effect of infection and bronchial obstruction in producing acute anoxia, and to show by physiologic studies the danger of oxygen therapy without some form of artificial respiration. Expand

1. It is appropriate to label patients with chronic airway obstruction as having chronic obstructive bronchopulmonary disease until a more precise diagnosis can be made. Asthma can usually, but notExpand
THE PATHOLOGY OF PULMONARY HEART DISEASE
TLDR
The following review of the incidence of pulmonary heart disease in routine post-mortem material attempts to estimate the importance of some of the lesions of the pulmonary vascular tree as a morphological basis for the cardiac hypertrophy. Expand
Chronic inflammatory bronchopulmonary disorders. A physiologically oriented approach to treatment.
The term diffuse chronic inflammatory bronchopulmonary disorders, although etiologically nonspecific, clearly identifies for many physicians a clinical syndrome of chronic and sometimes recurrentExpand
Cor pulmonale: Observations in fifty autopsy cases
TLDR
The clinical course and autopsy observations indicate that the right ventricle is burdened in emphysema, presumably by an elevation in pulmonary pressure, and that it undergoes dilatation and hypertrophy and ultimately fails. Expand
