Pulmonary venoocclusive disease

Common Name(s)

Pulmonary venoocclusive disease

Pulmonary venoocclusive disease (PVOD) is one of the less common causes of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which is a condition where blood pressure in the lungs is too high. PAH remains an incurable disease that results in significant morbidity and mortality, although certain medications that work to alleviate blood pressure in the lungs can limit the progression of this disease. PVOD remains a poorly understood entity, with fundamental questions about its epidemiology, causes, natural history, and optimal treatment.
