Abstract

CURBELO, Pablo et al. Tromboendarterectomía en hipertensión pulmonar tromboembólica crónica: Reporte del primer caso clínico en Uruguay. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.2, pp.223-227. ISSN 1688-0420.

Summary           Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension ( CTEPH) is a delayed diagnosed disease with high morbidity and mortality, especially when untreated. Ventilation/perfusion lung scan confirms the thromboembolic etiology, but pulmonary angiography is still the gold standard diagnostic procedure for defining the extension and location of the disease and surgical indication. Right heart catheterization provides accurate prognostic and disease severity information. Pulmonary endarterectomy represents a potentially curative option in eligible patients
