Understanding CTEPH: Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

with Gustavo Heresi, MD

Description:

Pulmonary hypertension is a rare and serious lung disorder. It occurs in people of all ages, races and ethnic backgrounds. One of the more severe causes of pulmonary hypertension is due to unresolved blood clots in the lungs, which is called chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). Although CTEPH can cause serious illness and can even be fatal in certain cases, it can be cured in some patients through a surgical procedure that removes the obstruction in the lung. Other causes of pulmonary hypertension may require a lung transplant to treat the patient.

Joing Dr. Gustavo Heresi to learn about diagnosis and treatment options for CTEPH.
