Thromboembolic Disease and PH: The Spectrum of Therapies

June 23, 2012

Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) is a progressive disease that can result in severe shortness of breath and disability. It also appears to be more common than previously realized. Unlike most other causes of pulmonary hypertension, CTEPH is often cured with surgery (pulmonary endarterectomy), although very few centers perform this procedure. We will discuss the diagnosis and medicinal and surgical treatment of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension with a particular focus on treatment and outcomes.
