Pulmonary Vascular Disease
When compared with riociguat therapy, balloon pulmonary angioplasty was associated with more improvement in some parameters of hemodynamics and exercise tolerance in patients with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, according to a meta-analysis published in Clinical Cardiology.
For the study, the researchers analyzed 23 clinical trials involving 1,454 patients with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) — of whom 631 were treated with balloon pulmonary angioplasty and 823 were treated with riociguat (Adempas, Bayer).
