What We Do

The Toronto CTEPH Program receives referrals from physicians for patients who have suspected diagnosis of CTEPH. Led by Dr. de Perrot​, the program offers multidisciplinary assessment by the surgeons and respirologists who have expertise in the field of pulmonary hypertension.

Being the largest Canadian centre for the pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PEA) surgery, the program receives referrals from across the country. Our program is involved in:

  • Evaluation of acute and chronic thromboembolic disease
  • Education of patients and families about chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PEA)
  • Surgical management of CTEPH through PEA 
  • Interventional radiology management of CTEPH through Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty (BPA)
  • Increasing public and medical community awareness about CTEPH diagnosis and curative surgical treatment
  • Clinical research​​
