While considerable advances have been achieved in the medical treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) over the past decade, surgical and interventional approaches continue to have important roles in those patients for whom medical therapy is unavailable or has been unsuccessful. These techniques include pulmonary thromboendarterectomy for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, thoracic transplantation, and atrial septostomy.
