Disease Persistent Fetal Circulation Syndrome

Name Persistent Fetal Circulation Syndrome
Synonyms ACDMPV | ACD MPV | ACD-MPV | Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia With Misalignment Of Pulmonary Veins | Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia With Misalignment Of Pulmonary Veins And Other Congenital Anomalies | Circulation, Persistent Fetal | Familial Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn | Fetal Circulation, Persistent | Hypertension, Pulmonary, of Newborn, Persistent | Misalignment of the Pulmonary Vessels | Persistent Fetal Circulation | Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of Newborn | Pulmonary Hypertension, Familial Persistent, of the Newborn
Definition A syndrome of persistent PULMONARY HYPERTENSION in the newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN) without demonstrable HEART DISEASES. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits CYANOSIS and ACIDOSIS due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS, PATENT) and at times a patent foramen ovale (FORAMEN OVALE, PATENT).
