Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) Injury Lawyers
Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) of the pulmonary artery—the main artery of the lungs. While the exact causes of PPH are unknown, there is a risk of developing PPH among patients using appetite-suppressant drugs. There are treatments for PPH available, but the condition has no known cure.
If you or someone you love used appetite-suppressant drugs and was diagnosed with PPH, contact Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough today. Our primary pulmonary hypertension injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You can contact our legal staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week—just dial (800) 210-8503 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
According to the American Lung Association, PPH is two to three times more common in women than men—although anyone can develop PPH. The condition can develop at any age, but often develops in patients between the ages of 20 and 60 years old.
The most common symptoms of PPH are often related to difficulty breathing, and they can include:
- bluish color of the lips or skin
- breathing harder or faster
- chest pain
- coughing up blood
- edema (swelling of feet or ankles)
In many cases, symptoms may fluctuate.
