Long-term treatment of primary pulmonary hypertension with continuous intravenous epoprostenol (prostacyclin).

Abstract

A young woman, bedbound with severe pulmonary hypertension, responded to intravenous epoprostenol with a fall in pulmonary vascular resistance, improved oxygenation, and a rise in exercise tolerance. For thirteen months, continuous infusion of epoprostenol has enabled her to live independently at home.
