In 1891, German doctor E. Romberg was the first to report PAH. It is widespread throughout the world, but it is particularly problematic in India and other developing countries. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterised by an increase in pulmonary arterial pressure as well as the emergence of progressive symptoms, such as a loss of functional ability, shortness of breath, and fatigue.

Blood flows from the right side of the heart to the lungs through the pulmonary arteries. Pulmonary arterial pressure refers to the pressure in the arteries of the lungs (PAH). It necessitates immediate treatment because high blood pressure in the lungs causes the right side of the heart to work much harder, increasing the risk of heart failure. This article aimed to provide brief information about the prevalence, pathology, classification, and different therapies of PAH. Read now:

Editor’s Choice – “Epidemiology and Pathology of Malignant Mesothelioma”

Journal: Current Respiratory Medicine Reviews

Author(s): Jack A. Kastelik, Mahmoud Loubani, Michael Greenstone, Simon Hart and Anne Campbell



Malignant Mesothelioma: Asbestos are naturally occurring fibrous silicate materials. It is well recognised that inhalation of asbestos fibres especially amphiboles is the most important risk factor for developing mesothelioma. The epidemiological models of association between the risks of asbestos and malignant mesothelioma take into consideration not only cumulative exposure but also time since first exposure. Current epidemiological estimates suggest that mesothelioma will remain a public health problem for a number of years with epidemiological studies suggesting that the peak incidence of mesothelioma has not been reached. In the global context, mesothelioma remains responsible for between 15,000 – 20,000 deaths annually. Malignant mesothelioma can be divided as per World Health Organization classification into epithelioid, sarcomatoid, desmoplastic and biphasic subtypes.
