Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a disease of the small pulmonary arteries characterized by vascular narrowing and increased pulmonary vascular resistance, which eventually leads to right ventricular failure. Vasoconstriction, vascular proliferation, remodeling of the pulmonary vessels, and thrombosis are all contributing factors to the increased vascular resistance seen in this disease. Pulmonary arterial hypertension develops as a sporadic disease (idiopathic), as an inherited disorder… CONTINUE READING
