Abstract

Despite an association with meconium and blood aspiration, pneumonia, sepsis, pneumothorax, prematurity, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia, no cause for persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn can be found in many cases. This article discusses the advances in current therapies including the promising new therapy of inhaled nitric oxide.
