Chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension 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.
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.
