PURPOSE: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) patients with mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP) ≦30 mmHg had a better prognosis than those with MPAP >30 mmHg. Recently, balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) developed as an alternative therapy for inoperable CTEPH patients. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to clarify predicting factors for MPAP ≦30 mmHg following BPA.
