Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease of the pulmonary vascular bed, and right heart failure is the leading cause of death. Treatment with vasoactive agents is crucial for these patient groups. We aimed to evaluate our treatment approach in patients with PAH patients as a tertiary centre.

Effect of a Cholesterol Rich Diet, Recurrent Infection and Possible Treatment Modalities on the Pulmonary Vascular System: An Experimental Study

Issue: 
Pages: 
132–6
Synopsis: 
The study was designed to investigate the effects of infection and/or cholesterol rich diet combined with therapeutic and preventative agents such as antibiotic, anti-inflammatory agent and red wine on the pulmonary vascular system.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Infection may lead to inflammation, atherosclerosis and thrombotic vascular events. The atherosclerotic effect of hypercholesterolaemia on the vascular system is well-known. However, limited studies were done on the therapeutic and preventative agents. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of infection and cholesterol rich diet combined with an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory agent and red wine on the pulmonary vascular system.
