Venous thromboembolism (VTE) encompasses deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (PE). It is the third-most-frequent cardiovascular disease, with an overall annual incidence of 1-2 per 1,000 population. Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is regarded as a late sequela of PE, with a reported incidence varying between 0.1% and 9.1% of those surviving acute VTE. Right ventricular (RV) function is dependent on afterload. The most precise technique to describe RV function is… CONTINUE READING
