Iloprost-Study: Comparison of Nitric Oxide to Iloprost (Ventavis) for Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension in Children After Cardiopulmonary Bypass Surgery
Inhaled nitrous oxide (iNO) will be compared to aerosolized iloprost (ILO) in pediatric
patients after cardiac surgery with pulmonary hypertension. The hypothesis is that iloprost
is more effective in preventing pulmonary hypertensive crises.
Observation of Patients With Primary Pulmonary Hypertension Receiving Prescribed Ventavis Inhalation Therapy Regarding Safety and Efficacy for up to 4 Years
This is an observational study to monitor the continued effectiveness of Ventavis (inhaled
iloprost) in the long-term. The study observes the effects and the safety of Ventavis
inhalation therapy over at least 2 years and up to 4 years. A total of 54 patients from
around 30 study sites in Europe will be included in the study. This observational study will
collect information in patients receiving a medication that is already available on
prescription in the participating countries. Ventavis is used to treat moderate cases of
primary pulmonary hypertension.
The "VISION" Trial: Ventavis Inhalation With Sildenafil to Improve and Optimize Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
The purpose of this multi-center international trial is to evaluate the safety and
effectiveness of adding iloprost or placebo (an inactive substance that contains no active
study drug) to sildenafil therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The study will
also examine whether patients on sildenafil can reduce the number of iloprost inhalations
from the approved 6 doses per day to 4 doses per day.
