Chronic pulmonary heart disease constitutes a frequent complication of chronic neumopathies, fundamentally as a consequence of chronic obstructive respiratory disease related to the harmful smoking habit and the environmental pollution. In Cuba there is a well structured health system that allows the early detection of this clinical pinture, because risk factors are well controlled. The treatment is aimed at diminishing pulmonary hypertension and congestion, as well as at preventing the frequent occurrence of embolism processes in these patients. This review of the medical literature in this respect, is intended to offer wider information to all doctors on such an important matter concerning health.
