Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare and serious medical condition that is severely underdiagnosed. As symptoms including shortness of breath, chest discomfort and fatigue are non-specific, the diagnosis can be difficult and is often missed. However, CTEPH is potentially curable by means of pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) performed at experienced centers.
This website aims to provide information about CTEPH, its diagnosis, management and outcome.
For healthcare professionals there is detailed information for all levels of clinical experience.
