18 Possible Causes for Severe Pulmonary Hypertension in End Stage Disease

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and ultimately fatal lung disease. One of the risk factors involved in the acquisition of IPF is viral infections, especially respiratory viruses. In the present study, we investigated the detection of respiratory viruses and the possible relationship between[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Lung Transplantation Lung transplantaion should be considered for patients with end stage COPD, fibrotic lung diseases and primary pulmonary hypertension who have severe symptoms[javed-abbas.tripod.com]

  • Acute Interstitial Pneumonitis

    In the end stage of chronic interstitial lung disease, respiratory failure occurs when severely low blood oxygen levels along with rising pressures in the pulmonary arteries[mayoclinic.org] This is often a consequence of pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory failure.[mayoclinic.org] […] condition occurs when your heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) — which is less muscular than the left — has to pump harder than usual to move blood through obstructed pulmonary[mayoclinic.org]

  • Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia

    In the end stage of chronic interstitial lung disease, respiratory failure occurs when severely low blood oxygen levels along with rising pressures in the pulmonary arteries[mayoclinic.org] This is often a consequence of pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory failure.[mayoclinic.org] […] condition occurs when your heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) — which is less muscular than the left — has to pump harder than usual to move blood through obstructed pulmonary[mayoclinic.org]

  • Ascites

    hypertension, recurrent or persistent severe spontaneous hepatic encephalopathy, advanced liver failure (bilirubin greater than 5 mg/dL or Model for End-stage Liver Disease[hepatitisc.uw.edu] […] especially if centrally located), severe coagulopathy (international normalized ratio [INR] greater than 5) or thrombocytopenia (platelet count less than 20,000/cm 3 ), moderate pulmonary[hepatitisc.uw.edu]

  • Honeycomb Lung

    In the end stage of chronic interstitial lung disease, respiratory failure occurs when severely low blood oxygen levels along with rising pressures in the pulmonary arteries[mayoclinic.org] This is often a consequence of pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory failure.[mayoclinic.org] […] condition occurs when your heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) — which is less muscular than the left — has to pump harder than usual to move blood through obstructed pulmonary[mayoclinic.org]

  • Hepatopulmonary Syndrome

    Several years later, a repeat echocardiogram showed resolution of pulmonary hypertension.[appliedradiology.com] A liver biopsy confirmed end-stage liver disease and hepatic cirrhosis and he was placed on the liver transplant list.[appliedradiology.com]

  • Gaucher Disease

    Gaucher disease (GD), a lysosomal storage disorder, may result in end-stage lung disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report successful bilateral lung transplantation in a 49-year-old woman with GD complicated by severe pulmonary hypertension and fibrotic changes in the lungs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autoimmune Interstitial Lung Disease - Arthritis Syndrome

    In the end stage of chronic interstitial lung disease, respiratory failure occurs when severely low blood oxygen levels along with rising pressures in the pulmonary arteries[mayoclinic.org] This is often a consequence of pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory failure.[mayoclinic.org] […] condition occurs when your heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) — which is less muscular than the left — has to pump harder than usual to move blood through obstructed pulmonary[mayoclinic.org]
