The study, “Soluble ST2 as a Biomarker for Early Complications in Patients with Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension Treated with Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty,” was published in the journal Diagnostics. CTEPH is a rare form of pulmonary hypertension caused by the formation of blood clots in blood…
