Effectively Treating CTEPH with PTE Surgery

CTEPH (chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension) is a life-threatening form of pulmonary hypertension that is caused by blood clots in the lungs following pulmonary embolism. Dr. Paul Forfia and the entire CTEPH Program at Temple are one of the most experienced centers in the country for the treatment of this condition. They have effectively treated over 200 CTEPH patients with a complex surgery called PTE.
