Pulmonary Endarterectomy

Pulmonary Endarterectomy - What it is

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a condition whereby lung pressures are raised due to chronic blood clots in the lungs. Pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is potentially the curative treatment option for CTEPH. It is an open-heart surgery carried out to remove blood clots from the arteries in the lungs to help improve blood flow.
