The field of chronic thromboembolic disease is a changing landscape with increasing evidence for new therapies. Aided by improved diagnostic tools, surgical techniques, the use of interventional approaches and the approval of medical therapies, treatment of the disease also requires a multi-disciplinary team approach and training to understand contemporary decision making. This class is designed to meet the target audience’s need for an advanced learning opportunity that explores and seeks to address the unique clinical challenges faced by those caring for patients with CTEPH. The four topics covered in this Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) Master Class include diagnostic challenges/modalities utilized for CTEPH, management strategies of the complex CTEPH patient, interventional approaches and mechanical support, and surgery for CTEPH.

The course is intended for specialists with advanced levels of expertise. Ideally, participants will have completed the core competency course on Pulmonary Hypertension (PH), have primary practice in thoracic, cardiothoracic surgery or medical treatment of PH ≥ 5 years and/or have managed patients with one or more of the topics intended for discussion.
