Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a pathophysiological disorder that may involve multiple clinical conditions and the clinical classification of PH categorises these conditions into five groups according to their similar clinical presentation, pathological findings, haemodynamic characteristics, and treatment strategy. In recent years, substantial progress has been made in detecting and managing PH. A multistep, pragmatic approach to diagnosis should be considered in patients with symptoms or signs raising suspicion of PH. In particular, in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), it is important to classify the patient’s risk as low, intermediate, or high risk for clinical worsening or death as this will guide medical treatment. The overall treatment goal in patients with PAH is to achieve a low-risk status, which is associated with good exercise capacity, good quality of life, good RV function, and a low mortality risk. Despite treatment advances in recent years, PH remains a life-shortening condition. The complexity of managing PH requires a multifaceted, holistic, and multidisciplinary approach.

This prepared Special Issue will be devoted to all aspects of clinical treatment of pulmonary hypertension (PH). All researchers are invited to contribute original works and reviews (case reports and short reviews are not accepted).
