In our centre patients are thoroughly tested to diagnose the disorder, a treatment is applied and its effectiveness is determined. Both outpatient and inpatient services are provided.

The diagnostical and treatment problems are solved by a discussion of specialist doctors that takes place in the consulting room of Pulmonary Hypertenson Referral Centre every week (every Thursday at one o’clock in room P418).

We are currently following up and treating more than 120 patients with PAH and CTEPH in our electronic database. Over 80 patients recieve specific pulmonary hypertension treatment compensated by the National Health Insurance Funds. Patients with CTEPH are sreened and referred to modern surgical treatment – pulmonary endarterectomy. The patients we follow-up are included in international new medication studies and other programs.

We are closely collaborating with Lithuanian „People with Pulmonary Hypertension“ association.;;

The first successful pulmonary thromboendarectomy operation in Lithuania was performed on a patient with CTEPH in September 2010 by a team of heart surgeons (doc. R. Karalius, R. Širmenis, with the help of prof. E. Mayer from Germany). In 2011 for the first time in Lithuania a successful transcatheter atrial septostomy procedure was performed on a 15-year-old patient with a severe form of idiopathic PAH.
