Extract

Introduction: Combination therapy has been recommended in the latest guidelines for pulmonary hypertension (PH) in 2015 for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) who do not achieve therapeutic goals in terms of symptoms, exercise capacity and hemodynamics. For patients with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) or residual PH after pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) medical treatment with specific vasodilators is advised, too. This study analyses the drug-treatment and outcome of a real-life cohort of PAH and distal CTEPH patients.
