CTEPH Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary HYpertension

PH and Thromboembolic Disease

Faces of CTEPH - Read their storiesChronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a form of PH caused by blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism).

In most patients who have suffered a blood clot, blood thinners are enough to restore blood flow and prevent the development of pulmonary hypertension. However, a minority of patients will not respond adequately to blood thinners and may develop CTEPH. Patients may even develop CTEPH without a known history of blood clots.
