What is Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension?

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare and progressive type of pulmonary hypertension that occurs due to blood clots in the pulmonary arteries (which carry blood from the right side of the heart to the lungs), causing blockage. Risk factors include cancer, blood diseases, or inflammatory diseases.

Treatmentof Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

Surgery to remove the clot can potentially cure CTEPH with excellent long-term survival rates. However, lifelong medication is needed to thin the blood and prevent clots, diuretics (to remove salt and water), and oxygen (as needed).
