What is the prognosis (outlook) for patients who have chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH)?

Pulmonary endarterectomy/pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PEA/PTE) can cure CTEPH. The outlook is excellent. When surgery is performed by experienced teams, the risk of surgical death is less than 3%.
