Extract

Introduction: The prevailing hypothesis on chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is that pulmonary embolism (PE) is a necessary trigger for its pathogenesis. The true incidence of CTEPH after PE is actually not well known and has been found to vary almost ten-fold (0.57% to 4.7%) according to published studies. Therefore, the usefulness of a screening program after PE is uncertain. The aim of our study was to establish the 2-year incidence of CTEPH after PE in a large Swiss cohort. Additionally, we tested the performance of a 3 step screening algorithm based on an initial dyspnea questionnaire.
