Heart Transplant in Patients with Pulmonary Hypertension

 Dr. Holger Buchholz
Description: Patients with fixed PVH (PVR>2.5WU) have a significantly worse prognosis after HTX than patients with reversible pulmonary hypertension, mainly due to the increased risk of acute right ventricular dysfunction. Fixed PVH is considered to be present when elevated PVR cannot be significantly decreased by pharmacologic interventions. Different vasodilators have been tested to reduce pretransplant PVR, such as sodium nitroprusside, inhaled nitric oxide, phosphodiesterase inhibitors?
