Extract

Introduction: Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) is a treatment option for inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) or persisting pulmonary hypertension (PH) after pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA). Dual-Energy Computed-tomography (DECT) is an innovative and robust technology that allows the assessment of lung perfusion changes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate pulmonary perfusion changes after BPA by DECT.

Methods: Twenty segmental BPAs were performed in 6/7 inoperable patients and 1/7 patient with persisting PH after PEA (years: 70±11; mPAP: 38±3 mmHg; PVR:5±4 UW). We evaluated vascular permeability, pulmonary perfusion and pulmonary venous return using a 4-point scale (from 1: normal to 4: absence) on the pulmonary angiography before and after BPA.
