Abstract

A knowledge of the mechanisms involved in the development of isolated pulmonary arterial hypertension is essential to the determination of new and relevant therapeutic strategies. Vasodilatory treatment, notably calcium channel blockers, prostacyclin and analogs such as iloprost, may be effective at an early stage of the disease before the appearance of permanent vascular damage.
