What is CTEPH and am I at risk for getting it?

Have you recently had a pulmonary embolism (PE)? Well this webinar is for you! In a small number of patients who’ve had blood clots in their lungs—a pulmonary embolism (PE)—the clots don’t go away, and you can be at risk of developing CTEPH, or Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. CTEPH can be deadly, but is curable!

Sign up for this free webinar & interactive QA session on February 28th, from 7:00pm – 8:00pm EST, to learn more about CTEPH.
