Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a disorder formed by various diseases that have pathological similarities, therefore diverge in pathophysiology and prognosis. Clinically, it is characterized by dyspnea, chest pain and syncope, causing progressive limitation, right-heart failure and death. Histopathologically occurs pulmonary vascular remodeling, with subsequent increase of resistance, and in situ thrombosis.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
