Pulmonary hypertension (PH) refers to elevated pulmonary arterial pressure. PH can be due to a primary elevation of pressure in the pulmonary arterial system alone (pulmonary arterial hypertension), or secondary to elevations of pressure in the pulmonary venous and pulmonary capillary systems (pulmonary venous hypertension). PH can be a progressive, fatal disease if untreated, although the rate of progression is highly variable. Most patients with PH should be evaluated in a center with expertise in the diagnosis and management of this population.
