Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.
An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.
Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
Heparin is the reference therapy for most patients with pulmonary embolism. Some patients with sub-massive pulmonary embolism defined by normal blood pressure and dysfunction of the right...
The purpose of this study is to - investigate which method and criterion for diagnosing pulmonary embolism is the best and - determine the relationship between blood ves...
To develop a clinical prediction rule to identify patients with acute pulmonary embolism who are at very low risk for short-term adverse outcomes.
A prospective observational study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness data of catheter-directed therapy (CDT) including percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) for treatment of acu...
To assess the efficacy and safety of Tenecteplase versus Placebo in normotensive patients with sub-massive Pulmonary Embolism and Right Ventricular Dysfunction (RVD) all receiving unfracti...
Pulmonary bone marrow embolism (BME) and pulmonary bone fragment embolism (BFE) are two types of non-thrombotic pulmonary embolism (NTPE). While BME can be found consistently in autopsies, BFE is a ra...
Objective. The risk of pulmonary embolism is well recognized as showing an increase in oncological patients. We report a case presenting with pulmonary embolism initially, which was then diagnosed wit...
A short-cut review was carried out to establish whether the pulmonary embolism rule-out criteria (PERC) can safely exclude the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) in the emergency department (ED). On...
With the prevalence of an aging American population on the rise, osteoporotic vertebral fractures are becoming a common occurrence, resulting in an increase in vertebral augmentation procedures and as...
Pulmonary embolism is a rare clinical onset of chronic myeloproliferative diseases. Early diagnosis is very important because medical therapy reduces both mortality and morbility. We describe a case o...
