Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Information

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic condition that can lead to right heart failure if left untreated. Individuals with this disease have high blood pressure (hypertension) in the arteries of their lungs (the pulmonary artery). The pulmonary arteries are the blood vessels responsible for carrying blood from the right ventricle of the heart to the lungs for oxygenation.
