Portopulmonary hypertension (PPHTN) refers to the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension in the setting of portal hypertension with or without chronic hepatic failure. This syndrome is characterized by marked alternations of pulmonary vascular tone and obstruction of pulmonary arterial blood flow. An increased pulmonary blood flow, which is a hallmark of the hyperdynamic circulation of cirrhotic patients, seems to be present in almost all patients who develop PPHTN. The elevations of… CONTINUE READING
