Pulmonary Hypertension and Venous Thromboembolism

A state of elevated blood pressure inside the arteries of the lungs is pulmonary hypertension (PH or PHTN). Symptoms contains shortness of breath,  tiredness, syncope, chest pain, swelling of the legs, and a fast heartbeat. The condition can make it difficult to exercise. Onset is characteristically gradual. The cause is frequently unknown. Risk factors include family history, past lung blood clots, sickle cell disease, HIV / AIDS, cocaine use, chronic pulmonary obstructive disease, sleep apnea, high altitude sleep, and mitral valve issues. Inflammation of the arteries in the lungs and subsequent remodelling are usually involved in the underlying mechanism. Diagnosis means first ruling out all alternate causes.

venous thrombosis is a thrombosis in a vein, affected by a thrombus (blood clot). A common form of venous thrombosis is a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot typically found in the deep veins of the leg. The deep veins of the arm are steadily observed, accounting for more than 10% of all deep vein thrombosis. It may become a pulmonary embolism (PE), a blood clot in the lungs, if the thrombus breaks off (embolizes) and flows into the lungs. This combination is referred to as venous thromboembolism. There are also many other types of venous thrombosis, some of which can also contribute to pulmonary embolism.
