BEIRUT: The American University of Beirut Medical Center became the first hospital in Lebanon to perform a pulmonary thromboendarterectomy surgery, according to a statement released by AUBMC Monday.
The goal of pulmonary thromboendarterectomy is to decrease the extent of pulmonary vascular obstruction, thereby reducing pulmonary arterial pressure and improving cardiac function.
In the past, we have done many challenging surgeries like the Pulmonary Thromboendarterectomy (PTE), operating on a patient with a rare condition called Situs Inversus Solitaris with Dextrocardia etc., however in this case it was more difficult since we noticed that the patient needed to have two valves replaced simultaneously, if he had to recover and lead a normal life.
For patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, ACCP guidelines recommend placement of a permanent vena caval filter in those patients undergoing pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (grade 2C), either before or at the time of surgery.
Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy may provide a surgical cure for patients who suffer from chronic thromboembolic disease.

Also, an embolus from the occluding thrombus into a more distal cerebral artery would not be removed by the thromboendarterectomy and would require thrombolytic therapy or a second, intracranial surgical embolectomy to remove.
PAS was confirmed in five patients, and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) was considered the correct diagnosis with the histological findings from CGFB and confirmed after pulmonary thromboendarterectomy later [Figure 3].

Survival was 81% at 3 years in a group of 88 patients who underwent thromboendarterectomy. Prior to the surgery, all of the patients were New York Heart Association functional class III or IV said Dr.
