Pulmonary Endarterectomy - Preparing for surgery

Please follow the below instructions to prepare for your PEA surgery:

  • Inform your doctor on your current medications as some medicines are unsuitable for consumption before a surgery. These include blood thinners, as well as traditional medications (which may contain blood thinners or steroids).
  • If you are a smoker, please refrain from smoking during this time period.
  • Provide your clinician with a list of your medical history, particularly for allergies.
  • You may need to undergo other medical examinations prior to the surgery. Some examples of the tests include:
    • ECG (electrocardiogram)
    • Blood tests
    • Chest x-ray
    • Urine sample
