Abstract

Isolated peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis presenting in adulthood is an uncommon cause of right ventricular hypertension and may be misdiagnosed as primary or thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. Treatment consists of balloon angioplasty and stenting of the affected vessels, although the procedure can be complicated by reperfusion pulmonary edema.
