What are the causes of Pulmonary hypertension?

Pulmonary hypertension may develop due to a variety of factors, including:

Damage to the left heart is caused by systolic or diastolic malfunction of the left ventricle or faulty heart valves.

Chronic bronchitis, pneumoconiosis, nocturnal breathing stoppage, lung development anomalies, and other illnesses of the respiratory system impair breathing.

PATE (pulmonary artery thromboembolism) is a condition that occurs as a result of thrombophlebitis. If a thrombus that enters the pulmonary artery is small, it does not obstruct its lumen completely and does not lead to the patient’s death. However, the vessel lumen narrows, resulting in greater pressure.

Toxins — the long-term effects of some compounds in drugs cause high blood pressure.

Other illnesses, such as sickle-cell anemia, beta thalassemia, severe hypertension, and congenital cardiac abnormalities, are often linked to HIV infection.
