ATAMANUK, Nicolás A.. Algorithm of pulmonary hypertension treatment: Pulmonary Hypertension Guidelines 2013 Nice. What will change for 2015?. Insuf. card. [online]. 2015, vol.10, n.1, pp.36-48. ISSN 1852-3862.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension is characterized by a low prevalence disease, rapid progression and difficult diagnosis, situating it in a medical context of challenge, since these patients are undiagnosed or are misleadingly characterized, and their treatment ends up being wrong or inefficient. This was understood a few decades ago and led to the creation of a treatment algorithm allowing the physician to perform a systematic way an effective therapeutic intervention. The same was changing over the years to its latest version, presented at the 5th World Symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension (WSPH) in the city of Nice (France) in 2013. The truth is that while being similar enough overall compared to the previous (4th WSPH, Dana Point 2008), it reflects some conceptual changes, and this algorithm to the present we have new evidence on these new concepts. It is the purpose of this review was to analyze what these changes and the enforcement by 2015 or otherwise, thereof.
