Parth M. Rali, MD, Associate Professor of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Director of the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) Program at Temple Health, provided expert commentary to Reuters Health about a large study of patients with acute pulmonary embolism. The study showed that chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension was rare in the patients studied, but that post-pulmonary embolism impairment was not. Dr. Rali was not involved in the study, which was reported in the European Heart Journal. MD Alert and Medscape picked up the Reuters Health story.
