The UCSF Medical Center has a specialized Pulmonary Hypertension Program to provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment of both primary and secondary pulmonary hypertension. This disease often is misdiagnosed. Pulmonary hypertension is a condition characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries that supply the lungs. Pulmonary hypertension may be an isolated condition that may occur for unknown reasons (primary pulmonary hypertension) or may occur due to or in association with other underlying disorders or conditions (secondary pulmonary hypertension). Managing this illness and its complications, including right heart failure, requires expertise and access to sophisticated treatment such as oral and continuous intravenous medication and lung transplantation. Treatments for pulmonary hypertension can be highly complex and require intensive ongoing follow-up, all of which are available through the UCSF Pulmonary Hypertension Program.
