The collected data from the Zurich Registry for pulmonary Hypertension (PH) are evaluated in a retrospective analysis. This study examines the number of patients and their exact diagnoses who are treated at the University Hospital of Zurich and potentially other participating in the Zurich Registry. Other demographic parameters such as age, gender and body-mass-index are also part of the evaluation. Furthermore, the analysis will focus on the newest guidelines on PH. Therefore, it will be checked how many patients would fulfill the therapeutic goals in terms of New York Heart Classification (NYHA), 6-minute walk distance, sign of right heart failure and N-terminal pro-brain-natriuretic peptide(NTproBNP). Additionally, the study examines on how the patients are treated. Despite the different kind of Drugs, the focus lies on the combination therapy (single, double, triple) and the impact the therapy had on the patients.
