What are the complications of Eisenmenger syndrome ?

What are the complications of Eisenmenger syndrome ?

• Haemoptysis.

• Right ventricular failure.

•Cerebrovascular accidents (as a result of paradoxical embolization, venous thrombosis of cerebral
vessels, or intracranial haemorrhage).

•Sudden death.

•Brain abscess.

•Bleeding and thrombosis (patients at increased risks for both as a consequence of an abnormal
haemostasis secondary to chronic arterial desaturation).

•Paradoxical embolization.

•Infective endocarditis.

•Hyperuricaemia.

•Recurrent haemoptysis.

What do you understand by the term 'Eisenmenger syndrome' ?

What do you understand by the term 'Eisenmenger syndrome' ?

 Pulmonary hypertension with a reversed or bidirectional shunt. 

It matters very little where the shunt happens to be (e.g. VSD, ASD, patent ductus arteriosus, persistent truncus arteriosus, single ventricle or common atrioventricular canal).
