Pulmonary Hypertension

Edited by Marius M. Hoeper and Marc Humbert
Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension plays an increasingly important role in contemporary medicine. It may present as discrete disease or as complication of a broad spectrum of other conditions, such as connective tissue disease, congenital heart disease, liver disease, lung disease or left heart disease. All of these forms have different features and their management is never the same. This Monograph aims to provide an in-depth overview of our current understanding of the various forms of pulmonary hypertension, their diagnosis and their treatment.
