Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a relatively rare disease. You have a 600 percent increased change to developing PPH if you ingested diet drugs in the past. Attorneys advocating on behalf of PPH sufferers who were prescribed fen-phen place a high priority on obtaining compensation needed to fund the most promising PPH treatments.
Each patient is unique, and the best therapies will be determined through close communication with appropriate medical specialists. Relatively few doctors have expertise in managing this disease, which makes treatment expensive and challenging to gain access to. Moore Law Firm is a well-established fen-phen litigation law firm with the level of knowledge and dedication needed to achieve results for deserving PPH sufferers.
How To Treat PPH — Be Informed Through Close Communication With Appropriate Medical Experts
There is no cure for PPH, but effective treatments can dramatically improve a patient's quality of life and increase his or her life span. Promising therapies and treatments have included:
- Calcium channel blocker drugs (now less commonly used than previously)
- Vasodilator drugs, such as Flolan, Remodulin, Tyvaso and Tracleer delivered by way of ambulatory infusion pumps
- Digoxin to improve right ventricular function when a patient has right ventricular failure
- Diuretics for management of edema
- Oxygen therapy
- For some patients, a low-sodium and low-fluid diet
- Exercise in moderation
- Lung transplant
- Echocardiography for long-term monitoring
