  • Embolic diseases can result in serious complications, depending where the emboli travels and organs that it affects. Thromboembolisms arise from pieces of a blood clot breaking free. Treatment and prevention involves anticoagulants for the different types of embolic diseases. Here is the latest research on embolic diseases.

  • Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.
