Interventional Treatment of Residual Pulmonary Hypertension in Patients After Pulmonary Thromboendarterectomy

2016-04-20 18:23:22 | BioPortfolio


The study evaluates the technique of non-drug treatment of residual pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy.


The best strategy of treatment patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is pulmonary thromboendarterectomy. In 5-30% of cases after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy residual pulmonary hypertension is persisted. The technique of radiofrequency pulmonary artery denervation in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (type I) is known and was assessed during clinical investigation. In this study radiofrequency pulmonary artery denervation technique may be applied in patients with residual pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (type IV)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

The blood pressure as recorded after wedging a CATHETER in a small PULMONARY ARTERY; believed to reflect the PRESSURE in the pulmonary CAPILLARIES.

Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.

Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.

Surgical excision, performed under general anesthesia, of the atheromatous tunica intima of an artery. When reconstruction of an artery is performed as an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ATHERECTOMY.
