Untreated PAH: As pulmonary arterial hypertension (pah) progresses, the increased pressure causes the right side of the heart to enlarge, weaken, and eventually fail. Left untreated, the median survival for pah patients is 2.8 years, and 50 percent of patients diagnosed with pah die within five years.

It is a good idea to have a list of questions written down and take notes of the answers. Take a friend with you ...Read more
Medical Care Needed: The spleen is a very vascular organ and, though well protected by the rib cage, is susceptible to blunt trauma. Minor injuries may usually be managed by "watchful waiting", but rupture can lead to life-threatening bleeding. In the past, this meant splenectomy.
