Search Pruning on Chest X Ray


Does pruning on chest x ray only happen with primary pulmonary hypertension or also with other causes of pulmonary hypertension (other vasculopathies, left ventricular heart disease, pulmonary veno-occlusive disease, ... and so on)?

Also: what is your concept on how pruning develops?
To me, those are the hypertrophied (?) vessels in primary pulmonary hypertension, which show a "cut-off"?..

Thanks a lot.
