Abstract Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) frequently arises in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) and can lead to pulmonary vascular disease (PVD). The present study was initiated to distinguish the predisposing effect of bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 (BMPR2) in CHD by comparing the different mutation features of BMPR2 between CHD patients with or without PVD.
