CTEPH COUNCIL CREATION
After much deliberation, the ISHLT Board of Directors has approved the establishment of a separate CTEPH (chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension) Council within the Society. The idea to create a separate Council was born out of complimentary goals from CTEPH expert members and ISHLT leadership to have a reliable international platform to discuss and engage multinational CTEPH experts in important domain projects, and for the ISHLT to engage the world-wide community and increase its membership. Among several other relevant points, some domain experts in the field of CTEPH who know the community best (especially from the surgical and interventional side of the discipline, who do not presently engage in the Society), have felt a strong need to have an independent platform separate from the PH council through which they can congregate and spend adequate time evaluating new therapies and establishing best practices. The ISHLT hopes to provide this international “home” for the CTEPH community. All interested ISHLT members are invite to join the CTEPH Council. The first Chair of the new CTEPH Council, Dr. William Auger from the University of California San Diego, has been appointed by the Board for a 2-year term. Forthcoming officers will be elected by the membership of the Council.
