Siobal's excellent review of pulmonary vasodilators found that long-term use of calcium channel blockers (diltiazem and nifedipine) reduced pulmonary arterial pressure and improved survival over a 5-year period, but cautioned that oral calcium channel blockers use was limited by their dose-related systemic vasodilator effects, a potential for hypotension, worsening right-ventricular function, increased intrapulmonary shunt, and hypoxemia.
