Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) is an emerging interventional treatment option for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). The non-invasive monitoring of CTEPH patients is a clinical challenge. In this study we examined changes in N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in patients undergoing BPA for inoperable CTEPH and related them to peri-procedural success.
