  • F. Balsano
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 164)


This session examined Pulmonary Vascular Diseases. We listened to reports regarding pulmonary hypertension and its relationship with hypoxemia and platelet function; we heard about the therapeutic correction of these diseases using therapy tending to modify the noted thrombophilic condition of both the platelet and fibrinogenic systems present in a high percentage of these patients, who, therefore, are also affected with secondary pulmonary hypertension.
