Objective: Chronic thromboembolic disease (CTED) is characterized by persistent pulmonary thromboembolic occlusions without pulmonary hypertension. Early surgical treatment by performing pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) may improve symptoms. The goal of the study was to review our experience and early outcome of PEA in patients with CTED.
