CTEPH Awareness Day

November 21, 2017

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a disease associated with pulmonary embolism (PE), a life-threatening blood clot that usually forms in a vein deep in the legs and travels to the lungs.

It is vital for all pulmonary hypertension patients to make sure that they have received all the necessary tests required for a proper diagnosis. To accurately diagnose PH, doctors must use a right heart catheterization. Every patient should also be tested to rule out the possibility of CTEPH. For many, the first step is getting a ventilation/perfusion (V/Q) scan. Download this print flyer that describes the V/Q scan and tells the story of Yanny Lopez, who was diagnosed with PH after developing a blood clot in her leg that traveled to her lungs.
