The conclusion is :

“HHT is an important condition for the practicing pulmonologist. Where formalized regional or national screening/treatment programs are instituted, the life expectancy is increased when compared to historical controls and similar countries operating less well-implemented screening programs. The recent approval of the European Reference Network (VASCERN HHT; ) is likely to improve visibility, transborder care, training, educational opportunities, and hopefully research for clinicians seeking greater insight into this important and long-overlooked condition.”
