A complex vascular abnormality in the lungs, termed alveolar capillary dysplasia (ACD) and misalignment of the lung vessels, has been recently recognized in some infants with persistent pulmonary hypertension. These infants die despite maximal medical support including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Inhaled nitric oxide has been reported to improve oxygenation in neonates with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, and may allow some infants to avoid the need for ECMO… CONTINUE READING
