Recent studies suggest that up to 50% of patients surviving pulmonary embolism (PE) may suffer from post-PE syndrome, which is defined by persistent dyspnea, impaired exercise capacity and/or decrease...
A 56-year-old man developed chronic breathlessness which persisted for years after he suffered acute pulmonary embolism (PE) despite all investigations being subsequently normal. This case illustrates...
Young patients presenting with thrombotic events like pulmonary embolism and cardiological phenomenon such as presence of an intracardiac mass, without any underlying risk factors, should be promptly...
Pulmonary embolism is one of the leading causes of maternal death in the Western world. Because of the low specificity and sensitivity of the d-dimer test, all pregnant women with suspected pulmonary ...
Identifying reversible causes of cardiac arrest is challenging. The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is often missed. Pulmonary embolism increases alveolar dead space resulting in low end-tidal CO (EtC...
This project aims to evaluate a rehabilitation program as treatment and uncover potential pathophysiological mechanisms of a newly identified chronic condition named "Post Pulmonary Emboli...
EINSTEIN PE study demonstrated that rivaroxaban is at least as effective as the current standard therapy with 51% relative risk reduction of major bleeding (1.1% vs. 2.2%, HR 0.49, 95% CI,...
To investigate PK and coagulating and fibrinolytic parameter profiles (PD) at the approved dose (13,750 - 27,500 IU/kg) in patients with acute pulmonary embolism accompanying hemodynamic i...
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...
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.
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.
An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.
