Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH)


Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare and progressive medical condition characterized by the presence of unresolved blood clots in the pulmonary arteries, leading to increased pressure in these vessels and eventually causing right heart failure. The clots obstruct blood flow, resulting in reduced oxygen supply to the body and increased strain on the right side of the heart.
