Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in lungs and the right side of heart. These are the serious conditions that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal. These fluctuations can cause the walls of the arteries to become thick and stiff, and extra tissue may form. The blood vessels may also become inflamed and tight. The symptoms are characterized by chest pain, swelling in ankles, legs.  Although some forms of pulmonary hypertension aren't curable, treatment can help lessen symptoms and improve the quality of life. Moreover, pregnancy may have serious threats for women with pulmonary hypertension, so be sure to discuss birth control options with the physician.
