Pulmonary hypertension
hypertension in the pulmonary circuit; may be primary, or secondary to pulmonary or cardiac disease, e.g., fibrosis of the lung or mitral stenosis..
High blood pressure. Despite many discrete and inherited but rare forms that have been identified, the evidence is that for the most part blood pressure is a multifactorial, perhaps galtonian trait. Its strong cybernetic properties may also be largely inherited but would not be reflected in measurements of heritability. The definition of what is “high” or “low” blood pressure is then entirely arbitrary, but extreme cases are undoubtedly dysgenic. Syn: hyperpiesis, hyperpiesia.
