Thrombotic arteriopathy and anticoagulation in pulmonary hypertension



Thrombotic arteriopathy and anticoagulation in pulmonary hypertension



Chest 130(2): 545-552



The role of thrombotic arteriopathy in the pathophysiology of idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) and the use of anticoagulants in the treatment of IPAH are currently controversial issues. This article reviews the evidence for a role of vascular thrombosis in the pathophysiology of IPAH.
