ABSTRACTPulmonary hypertension is a condition frequently seen and associated to many cardiovascular diseases and can become a hemodynamic complication in postoperative period. This can require the integral management in the intensive care room. In the last years we have many new concepts about the pathophysiology of this condition and new therapeutic options. In this paper we review the current strategies for the management of this condition.
