Pulmonary hypertension is a world-wide problem which is gaining greater attention. Pulmonary hypertension is likely more frequently diagnosed now when compared to ten or twenty years ago because of the use and interpretation of echocardiograms. Pulmonary Hypertension will investigate and discuss concepts which will address the issue of etiology of pulmonary hypertension, its pathobiology with its close proximity to cancer, and the consequences of severe PH which is right heart failure and death.

Pulmonary hypertension is increasingly diagnosed worldwide and is now recognized as a public health problem.

Pulmonary Hypertension investigates the etiology of pulmonary hypertension, including pathobiological aspects of the disease arid the proximity of PH to cancer, as well as the consequences severe PH leading to heart failure and death.

Pulmonary Hypertension is now recognized as a public health problem, not just as an orphan disease. Therefore, the thoughts, ideas, and practices in the field of Pulmonary Hypertension research merit careful consideration.

The authors highlight Facts and findings that underpin current pathogenetic concepts of PH, offering analysis and synthesis of the state-of-the art knowledge, using, in some instances, pre-PubMed original data. This research is necessary now, more than ever before, because of a-widespread belief that significant progress has been made in PH response.

The authors of this book challenge the belief that enough has been done and offer a means of making the history of pulmonary hypertension research available to the next generation by providing analysis of a large amount of data and offering new contexts for consideration of PH
