    In this episode, Dr. Rajan Saggar, a pulmonologist at the University of California in Los Angeles, discusses the complications of pulmonary hypertension in various lung diseases.

    Sandeep Sahay, MD - Pulmonary Hypertension

    Sandeep Sahay, MD - Pulmonary Hypertension

    In this episode, Dr. Sandeep Sahay, a pulmonologist at Houston Methodist Hospital, discusses the concept of disease modification in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension (PH). He explains how traditional PH therapies focus on vasodilation, reducing pressure in the pulmonary artery by dilating blood vessels. However, newer therapies, such as sotatercept, work in different ways to reduce smooth muscle proliferation and thickness of the artery walls. Dr. Sahay suggests that if a drug is labeled as disease-modifying, it may be used in combination with existing PH medications from the beginning of treatment. However, he notes that further research, regulatory approval, and payer considerations are necessary for this to happen. @MethodistHosp @SandeepSahayMD

    Lewis Romer, MD - Pulmonary Hypertension

    Lewis Romer, MD - Pulmonary Hypertension

    Dr. Lewis Romer discusses his work on the PPHNet's Kids MoD PAH Trial: Mono- vs. Duo-Therapy for Pediatric PAH patients.
    The Kids Mod PAH study is a research project funded by the NIH that aims to determine the best initial therapy for children with newly diagnosed pulmonary hypertension. The study compares the effectiveness of one medication (sildenafil) versus a combination of two medications (sildenafil and bosentan) in improving the quality of life and functional class of these children. 
    The study team aims to provide enhanced care and support to the participants and their families throughout the study. The ultimate goal is to contribute to improving the care and outcomes for all children with pulmonary hypertension.
