Further study details as provided by Capital Medical University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the simvastatin can alleviate pulmonary hypertension
  • pulmonary pressure

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • simvastatin can highten the perioperative and long term survaval rate and the living quality

Study Start Date: January 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2012
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1simvastatin group
before the operation, the patient start the simvastatin medication on the dosage of 40mg per day
Drug: simvastatin
medication with simvastation on the dosage of 40mg per day before the operation and all the time after the operation
Other Name: simvastatin
No Intervention: 2contral group
just do routin operation with no use of simvastatin, other medication is exact the same as the simvastatin group

Detailed Description:

advanced pulmonary hypertension is refractory to the medication in use nowaday, especially pulmonary hypertension secondary to congenital heart disease or chronic pulmonary embolism.It is revealed that statins may intefere the pathogenisis of the pulmonary hypertension in many key poing, such as improving apotosis or inhiting the proliferation of pulmonary vascular smooth muscle cell. so we try to use simvastatin in the treatment of advanced pulmoary hypertension secondary to congenital heart disease or chronic pulmonary embolism before and after the operation.
