Özet

Objective: Pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) is characterized by remodeling of the small pulmonary arteries, leading to a progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance and right ventricular failure. In this study, we aimed to share our 10 years of experience dealing with pulmonary hypertension (PH) and provide information in real-life settings in terms of demographics, clinical course, PH subgroup distribution, and treatment patterns in patients with PAH in a tertiary center.
