BACKGROUND Patients with chronic thromboembolic disease (CTED) may suffer from exercise intolerance without pulmonary hypertension at rest. Pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) for symptomatic CTED results in improvement of symptoms and quality of life. Neither the pathophysiology of the exercise limitation nor the underlying mechanisms of the PEA-induced improvement have been studied previously. OBJECTIVES We studied hemodynamic and ventilatory responses upon exercise in 14 patients with CTED… CONTINUE READING
