PE/CTEPH: Link


acute PE, and CTEPH may be an extreme manifestation of this. CTEPH is the only curable form of PH with the option of surgery (PEA). In case it is not resolved after surgery, or the patient is deemed inoperable, there is a newly approved therapy available now with sGC stimulators. l
