Evaluation of Pulmonary Hypertension In First Degree Relatives Of Patients With Primary Pulmonary Hypertension
Background: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) was defined for the first time in 1951 as primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). Some studies emphasized on the role of genetics in the development of pulmonary hypertension in family members of affected patients. So, in this study we evaluated the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in first degree family of patients with documented PPH. Methods: In this cross-sectional analytic study 51 subjects (first relatives of patients with PPH, including parents, sisters, brothers and children were enrolled. Echocardiography and EST was done and the pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) before and after the test was compared. Results: A total of 27 subjects, 17 women and the 10 men were evaluated in 3 groups and based on PAP before exercise, 22 (81.5%) of participants had normal PAP and 5 (18.5%) were in intermediate group. After the exercise test 55.5% were in normal group, 33.3% in intermediate group and 11.1% had high PAP. Conclusion: We recommend to screen and evaluate the first degree relatives of these patients as high risk group.
Evaluation of Advanced Echocardiographic Parameters of Right Ventricular in Patients with Pulmonary Hypertension
Background and Objective: Pulmonary hypertension is an increase in blood pressure of the pulmonary artery which leads to right ventricular dysfunction. Therefore, the present study aimed to compare echocardiographic parameters in the study of right ventricular failure in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Materials and Methods: In the present descriptive cross-sectional study, data were col...متن کامل
Background: Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) results from the obstruction of predominantly major pulmonary vessels by organized blood clots and is one of the causes of pulmonary hypertension. The disease is still underdiagnosed and the true prevalence is not clear. The objective of this study was to determine the clinical characteristics and current management of patients w...متن کامل
Cardiac disease is the main cause of death in both forms of thalassemia; thalassemia major (TM) and thalassemia intermedia (TI). Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is one of the cardiopulmonary morbidities with high mortality that, if not treated, may trigger right-sided heart failure and premature death. PH is defined as a mean pulmonary artery pressure of ≥25 mmHg at rest or ≥30 mmHg during exercise...متن کامل
Background Pulmonary hypertension (PH) in congenital heart disease affects the patient’s prognosis. Prolonged QRS and QTc intervals in ECG may intensify life-threatening dysrhythmia in patients. We aimed to investigate the correlation between QRS, QTc, and JTc intervals prolongation in ECG with PH in Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) patients. Mate...متن کامل
The Importance of Electrocardiography in Pediatric Patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Follow- up
Background: Right Ventricular (RV) hypertrophy is an adaptive response to chronic RV pressure overload in patients with pulmonary hypertension. We investigated the relationships between RV hypertrophy indicators, including electrocardiography, the percentage oxygen saturation (SaO2%), body mass index (BMI), and blood uric acid levels in patients with...متن کامل
