Abstract: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is designated as an intractable disease by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan, and has an extremely poor prognosis if untreated. Surgical pulmonary endarterectomy is the curative treatment for cases in which the organized thrombi are located in the central part of the pulmonary artery, but there had been no effective treatment for cases in which the thrombi are located in the peripheral part of the pulmonary artery. Recently, balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA), a transcatheter procedure to dilate stenotic or occluded lesions in the peripheral pulmonary artery, has been rapidly developed. Although BPA was once a globally abandoned procedure due to hemorrhagic complications, Japanese experts have improved the technique, and its safety and efficacy have been enhanced. As a result, BPA is now being reevaluated worldwide. This review describes the history and development of BPA in the treatment of CTEPH, as well as the status of this treatment in Fukushima Prefecture.
