Calcium channel blockers for pulmonary arterial hypertension | Cochrane

The blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs is normally much lower than the blood pressure in the rest of the body. Pulmonary hypertension occurs when the pulmonary arterial pressure gradually rises which causes damage to the heart, and can finally lead to heart failure and death. Calcium channel blockers are drugs which can relax the pulmonary arteries and decrease resistance and pressure of these vessels; this may benefit patients with pulmonary hypertension.
