On Nov. 11, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association will recognize CTEPH Awareness Day. Join us for a Facebook Live Q&A at 10 a.m. EST (Spanish) or at noon EST (English) on this page or on Facebook.
If you miss the live event, you can watch the recording afterward.
Check out our resources below to learn more about the risks, symptoms and treatment options for CTEPH.
What Is CTEPH?
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a form of pulmonary hypertension (PH) caused by old blood clots in the lungs, also known as pulmonary emboli. In most patients with these blood clots, use of prescribed blood thinners can restore blood flow to the lungs and prevent development of CTEPH. However, a minority of patients may still develop CTEPH even with the use of blood thinners. The good news is treatment options are available. Learn more about CTEPH, including treatment options, at our CTEPH education page here.
You can learn more about symptoms and treatments by watching these two PHA Classroom videos below.
