Clinical and genetic characteristics of pulmonary arterial hypertension in Lebanon

BMC Medical Genetics

May 31, 2018

Ossama K Abou HassanImad BouAkl

Abstract

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare disease with an incidence rate of 2-6 cases per million per year. Our knowledge of the disease in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is limited by the small number of clinical studies and the complete absence of genetic studies...read more

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are present since birth and are a result of improper development of the heart. Prenatal diagnosis on screening ultrasound can detect these defects and better techniques for surgical repair have improved the life expectancy of those born with these diseases. Discover the latest research on congenital heart diseases here.

Pulmonary Hypertension

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.

Comparative Sequencing

Inter/Intra-Species: Comparative Sequencing describes the sequencing techniques that compare between and within species genomes. Discover the latest research on comparative sequencing of inter/intra-species here.

Inherited Cardiac Conditions & Genetic Testing

Genetic testing is an important and necessary aspect of the management of families with cardiac genetic conditions. Here is the lastest research.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Pulmonary arterial hypertension refers to the high blood pressure in the arteries that go from the heart ot the lungs. Here is the latest research.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
