: : looking for any knowledege of this problem. My grandfather was told that this what was wrong with him and their was no cure. He is not looking for a treatment as much as he is looking for answer. What is it? What he should expect? and What caused it? If you have any info it would be a great help. Coleman

: Dear Coleman:
I read on the internet at a drug called Avalide is being used for primary pulmonary hypertension with good results.
: From the way you describe your granfather's condition, it appears to be what is called "pulmonary hypertension.

: The web site of The American Heart Assn. has all the answers to your questions. They are located at http://www.americanheart.org. Click on their "Heart & Stroke A-Z Guide" found on the right side of their home page. Then click on "P" and go down to Pulmonary Hypertension for a full explanation.

: This condition is not curable, just like heart disease is not curable, but it is treatable.

: Ken
