Histoenzymological and ultrastructural investigations regarding the role of the endogenous peroxidase at the pulmonary level in cardiogenic pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract

We found optically and ultrastructurally endogenous peroxidase in 90 intraoperatory pulmonary biopsies taken from patients with valvular cardiopathies and different degrees of pulmonary hypertension. The enzymatic activity increases proportionally to the pulmonary hypertension and it reaches its maximum in severe cases of hemosiderosis. Ultrastructurally we… (More)
