Dinoprostone is also used for the longer-term maintenance of ductal patency in low-birth-weight infants with duct-dependent pulmonary circulations
but branch pulmonary arteries that are too small for immediate surgical placement of a systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt.
Utilization of these agents should be based on evidence of dynamic pulmonary circulation
vasoreactivity and sustained drug response.
Vanadium contained in vanadium-rich residual oil fly ash given intratracheally can gain access into the pulmonary circulation
(Huang et al.
Examples are diseases of the airways, diseases of the interstitium (the space between tissues), or disorders of the pulmonary circulation
, the ventilatory apparatus, or gas exchange.
He goes on to describe specific conditions, including arrhythmias, cardiac emergencies, and congenital heart disease, as well as diseases of the pulmonary circulation
13 Pulmonary circulation
and anatomical right-to-left shunts.
In the vast majority of patients, massive haemoptysis originates from the bronchial circulation more so than the pulmonary circulation
in the vast majority of patients.
In shunt lesions the systemic circulation is relatively under-perfused and the pulmonary circulation
Aschner's research has focused on the regulation of the neonatal pulmonary circulation
and the factors that contribute to pulmonary hypertension in infants with lung and heart disease.
Other chapters address noninvasive exploration of the pulmonary circulation
and the right heart; invasive hemodynamic measurements in the management of pulmonary vascular disease; portopulmonary hypertension and hepatopulmonary syndrome; pulmonary veno-occlusive disease; acute venous thromboembolic disease; atrial septostomy; anticoagulation for venous thromboembolism; and pulmonary vascular disorders in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.
Blood may return to the LV via the pulmonary circulation
as a consequence of RV ejection or directly via the bronchial arteries and Thebesian veins.
In our case, pulmonary dilatation developed due to the pressure overload on pulmonary circulation
caused by PHT.
