Mayo Clinic is testing inhaled prostacyclin to treat symptoms of respiratory distress. Like oxygen supplements, this treatment is intended to make people more comfortable but does not treat the underlying hepatopulmonary syndrome.
See a list of publications on hepatopulmonary syndrome by Mayo Clinic doctors on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
