Pulmonary Vascular Disease (PAH & CTEPH) (PVD)Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing surgery and anesthesia. This document represents the first international consensus statement for the perioperative management of patients with pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure.

This statement from the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) includes recommendations for managing patients with PH being considered for surgery, including preoperative risk assessment, planning, intra- and postoperative monitoring, and management strategies that can improve outcomes in this vulnerable population. This comprehensive document includes common perioperative patient populations and surgical procedures with unique considerations.
