For those with very severe disease, surgery is sometimes helpful and may include lung transplantation or lung volume-reduction surgery[2] which involves removing the parts of the lung most damaged by emphysema, allowing the remaining, relatively good lung to expand and work better.

Recent studies utilizing magnetic resonance imaging MRI to measure right ventricular wall thickness and volume non—invasively demonstrated a significant increase in right ventricular wall mass that was classified as concentric hypertrophy in patients with severe COPD and either normoxemia or mild hypoxemia Vonk-Noordegraaf et al Clinical respiratory medicine expert consult 4th ed.

The destruction of the connective tissue of the lungs leads to emphysema, which then contributes to the poor airflow, and finally, poor absorption and release of respiratory gases.

Comparison of ECG, radiological measurements, cot and myocardial scintigraphy. He noted that they did not collapse as usual because they were full of air and the airways were filled with mucus.

Early descriptions of probable emphysema include: This review will examine the epidemiology of PH associated with COPD, its clinical manifestations, methods of diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment strategies. These processes cause elevation of pulmonary arterial pressures. The combined effects of inflammation, endothelial cell dysfunction, and angiogenesis appear to contribute to the development of PH associated with COPD.

These very early histopathologic findings suggest that the morphologic changes in the pulmonary arteries are initiated by the toxic effects of tobacco smoke and progress in parallel with the parenchymal changes of COPD Hale et al Figure 1. Elevated jugular venous pressure, hepatojugular reflux, and a pulsatile liver are often signs coe tricuspid insufficiency.
