PH and Heart Failure: A Case Study

Dana McGlothlin, MD
May 8, 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT

Left heart failure is the most common cause of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and is associated with increased disability and mortality, yet it can be challenging to recognize and distinguish it from other causes of PH. It is important to be able to distinguish PH due to left heart disease from other types of PH because the prognosis and treatment are different, and in particular, the use of selective pulmonary vasodilator therapies used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension lead to adverse outcomes in patients with left heart disease.
