In some cases a pulmonary embolism can lead to chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), a life-threatening but potentially correctable form of pulmonary hypertension. If left untreated, CTEPH is a progressive and life-threatening disorder; survival being proportional to the degree of pulmonary hypertension at diagnosis. Sulaiman Surie’s research focuses on identifying strategies for early diagnosis of CTEPH after a pulmonary embolism. He also studies restoration of cardiac function after the operation.
