What is eisenmenger's phenomenon or syndrome?

LikeAnswersShare
Eisenmenger syndrome is a complication of a heart defect that patient is born with (congenital). A heart defect that causes a hole (shunt) to develop between two chambers of your heart is the most common cause of Eisenmenger syndrome. This hole causes blood to circulate abnormally in your heart and lungs. It occurs when the pressure in the pulmonary arteries becomes so high that it causes oxygen-poor (blue) blood to flow from the right to left ventricle and then to the body, causing cyanosis. The high pressure also causes the wall of your heart's right ventricle to thicken.

Eisenmengers phenomenon occur in congenital heart disease. Where at the beginning there is a tendency of blood shunting from left to right, as time goes on pulmonary vascular resistance develop leading to reverse of shunt from right to left, interferring with oxygenation
Eisenmenger syndrome is presention of congenital heart defects like ASD with reversal of shunt so as pt presents with cynosis sob dysponic Long standing cases with clubbing of nails and PAH
