Treatment For Primary Pulmonary Hypertension

Treatment for primary pulmonary hypertension can be complicated in light of the fact that there are multiple risk factors involved. These include but are not limited to, hypertension of the heart, congenital heart disease, portal hypertension and pulmonary arterial fibrillation. If any or more of these risk factors are present in a patient, then the treatment for primary pulmonary hypertension will need to be altered accordingly. Pulmonary hypertension is considered to be any situation where there is significant venous insufficiency and lack of muscular vasoconstriction in the veins. This condition is usually caused by either congenital heart disease or peripheral arterial fibrillation and can have many different consequences. With severe cases, it can cause the accumulation of arterial waste material in the lungs, or it can lead to capillary fragility and venous insufficiency.

Patients with congenital heart disease or those with peripheral arterial fibrillation usually have a high risk factor for this condition. Patients with this disease have had a history of blockages in the veins and this is associated with the buildup of atrial mucosa and plasma protein syndrome. This condition is often referred to as “pink foam” or “wasted tissue”. Patients with PAH or venous insufficiency that does not involve atrial or pulmonary pathology have a lower risk for the development of this disease. This is because these patients have very little venous function and this is generally not due to any pathology.

Primary pulmonary hypertension can also be the result of cardiomyopathy, the build up of scar tissues in the heart caused by injury or disease. The build up of scar tissue in the heart can cause the prolongation of the internal venous circulation and decreased cardiac output. When cardiomyopathy is left untreated, it can lead to the severe disease described above. In addition, this disorder can cause left ventricular hypertrophy, congenital heart failure, congenital pulse biopsies, and sudden death.

For those patients who do not have congenital heart disease and are otherwise healthy, treatment can focus on controlling the symptoms of this condition and improving exercise capacity. Treatment options may include the use of diuretics to lower the heart rate; management of high blood pressure (hypertension) in patients without cardiomyopathy; and treatment of syncope. This last is usually due to poor muscle tone or paralysis of the forearm muscles. Medications such as atenolol and lofexidene acetate are commonly used in treatment for primary pulmonary hypertension.

As previously mentioned, the treatment for this condition will depend on whether the patient has primary dyspnoea or primary pulmonary arterial disease. If the diagnosis is idiopathic pulmonary hypertosis, treatment will include treating the underlying cause. Treatment options will normally include a combination of therapy and pharmacological management, in order to prevent further complications. In patients with idiopathic pulmonary hypertosis, treatment will most likely include surgery, which is indicated if the disease has no early-stage recovery mechanism. In this case, the treatment of choice is usually non-pharmacological, with the exception of maintenance medications such as albuterol.

Those patients with both primary pulmonary hypertension and idiopathic pulmonary arterial disease (IH), on the other hand, are treated differently. The goal of treatment for this condition is to improve the patient’s IH, while preventing or slowing the progression of idiopathic pulmonary hypertosis. Thus, treatment for both conditions usually requires the same steps, but some modifications are made for each.

Patients with primary pulmonary hypertension may benefit from intrapleural ultrasound (USP) along with either intravenous barstabismus (ABPS) or intravenous leucatinization (ILT). These two medications are relatively new for the treatment of patients with IH and are often combined with immunomodulating therapy, including anthracycline, prednisone, or valium. A variety of other medications may also be added to the treatment regimen, depending on the clinical response of the patient.

Patients with sickle cell disease may need a special course of therapy to control their disease. Standard treatments in this case include heparin, a protein used in dialysis and other blood products, cyclophosphamide, sulfasalazine, factor VIII, and methylprednisolone. Corticosteroids are commonly prescribed as a first-line form of therapy for sickle cell disease. Corticosteroids work by binding to the cells of the bone marrow to their base. The purpose of this treatment is to reduce the production and function of red blood cells (RBCs), which are the major part of the immune system and play an important role in the pathogenesis of IH.
