Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have Eisenmenger syndrome and severe pulmonary hypertension. Please advise.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

The lesions in Eisenmenger syndrome, such as large septal defects, are characterized by high pulmonary pressure or a high pulmonary flow state. The development of the syndrome represents a point at which pulmonary hypertension is irreversible and is an indication that the cardiac lesion is likely inoperable. Cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death are important late complications of this syndrome. Conservative management with medications and lung and cardiac transplantation are therapeutic approaches that can offer quality-of-life improvement. In case of further queries, please revert.
