The problem of a thrombogenic risk in chronic respiratory failure (CRF) can easily be collected within t-epulmonary hypertension picture. The relationships between these two factors are reciprocal and ambivalent: hypertension and pulmonary vascular damage are a thrombogenic risk where the eventual thrombosis favours pulmonary localization, while the complex thrombophilic dyscoagulation in patients with CRF, which is the other condition for thrombogenic risk, could cause the aggravation of pulmonary hypertension and of the linked anatomico-cunctional lesion by means of a more or less generalized microthrombosis.
