Prolonged alveolocapillary barrier damage following acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema

De Pasquale, Carmine G; Arnolda, Leonard; DOYLE, Ian R; Grant, Robyn; Aylward, Phillip; BERSTEN, Andrew


Objectives: To determine whether acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema is associated with damage to the alveolocapillary barrier, as evidenced by increased leakage of surfactant specific proteins into the circulation, to document the duration of alveolocapillary barrier damage in this setting, and to explore the role of pulmonary parenchymal inflammation by determining if circulating tumor necrosis factor-α is increased after acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Design: Prospective, observational...[Show more]
