This practical casebook provides important insight to clinicians looking to learn about the diagnosis and management of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). It systematically describes the clinical decision-making process for a wide variety of types of CTEPH, from common to rarely seen conditions. Chapters are constructed in an easy-to-follow format designed to improve the reader?s clinical decision-making.

Clinical Cases in Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension features a range of cases of CTEPH. It is therefore a vital evidence-based resource for trainee and practising cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, radiologists, pulmonologists and  internists looking to expand their knowledge in the area. 

Overview of Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension.- Case Presentations of CTEPH: main PA obstruction .- Case Presentations of CTEPH: CTE disease.- Case Presentations of CTEPH: “distal vessel”cases.- Case Presentations of CTEPH: chronic thromboembolic pulmonary vascular disease without pulmonary hypertension.- Mimics and competing diagnoses: Mediastinal Fibrosis .- Case presentations: Pulmonary Artery Sarcoma.- Case presentations: Pulmonary arteritis (Takayasu’s, Sarcoidosis) .- Case presentations: Proximal pulmonary aneurysms and lining thrombus.- Case Presentations: Other.
