Abstract

The role of perinatal insults in the development of adult onset pulmonary hypertension (PH) is unclear. We surveyed patients with and without PH for a history of early life risk factors, and identified prematurity, oxygen use, and respiratory illness each as risk predictors for development of adult PH.
