In brief: Vasodilator meds
Treatment of primary pulmonary htn, meaning disease of the pulmonary artery itself, includes medications to lower the BP of the lung blood vessels.
The class of meds include prostanoids, endothelin receptor antagonists and phosphodiesterase inhibitors. All of these medication dilated the blood vessel in the lung and lower the pressure. Other medications can include blood thinners and diuretics.
