Data on paediatric pulmonary embolism (PE) are scarce. We sought to systematically review the current literature on childhood PE and conducted a search on paediatric PE via PubMed (1946-2013) and Embase (1980-2013). There was significant heterogeneity in reported data. Two patterns were noted: classic thromboembolic PE (TE-PE) and in situ pulmonary artery thrombosis (ISPAT). Mean age of presentation for TE-PE was 14.86 years, and 51 % of cases were males. The commonest method for diagnosis of TE-PE was contrast CT with angiography (74 % of patients)...

Objective: To investigate the risk factors of pulmonary embolism (PE) in senile and non-senile inpatients, and evaluate the predictive value of Caprini risk assessment model in these two populations. Methods: Case control study design was used in this study. All the PE patients diagnosed in West China Hospital of Sichuan University between January 2012 and December 2014 was included and divided into senile PE group (age ≥65 years old) and non-senile PE group (age <65 years old). Age matched controls (senile control group and non-senile control group) were selected from the patients admitted into the same departments during the same time period as PE patients, at a ratio of 2∶1...

Pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis are the two most important manifestations of venous thromboembolism (VTE), which is the third most common life-threatening cardiovascular disease in the United States. Anticoagulation is the mainstay of VTE treatment. Most patients with deep venous thrombosis or low-risk pulmonary embolism can be treated in the outpatient setting with low-molecular-weight heparin and a vitamin K antagonist (warfarin) or direct-acting oral anticoagulants. Inpatient treatment of VTE begins with parenteral agents, preferably low-molecular-weight heparin...

Perioperative pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a fatal complication that may occur in patients who are undergoing surgery. This study aimed to identify risk factors for PTE-related death. This study evaluated data for the most recent 5-year period (2007-2011) from the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists' database of patients who experienced perioperative PTE. We compared patients who died within 30 days of onset and patients who survived for > 30 days, and used logistic regression analysis to identify the independent risk factors...

Obesity is a public health epidemic in the United States, which results in significant morbidity, mortality, and cost to the healthcare system. Despite advancements in traditional therapeutic options for the obese patients, there is a treatment gap for patients in whom lifestyle modifications alone have not been successful, but for whom bariatric surgery is not a suitable option. Areas covered: This treatment gap needs to be addressed and thus, complimentary or alternative treatments to lifestyle changes and surgery are urgently needed...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Obesity is a risk factor for all-cause and cardiovascular death but, despite this, an inverse relationship between overweight or obesity and a better cardiovascular prognosis in long-term follow-up studies has been observed; this phenomenon, described as obesity paradox, has also been found evident in atrial fibrillation cohorts. METHODS: We performed a systematic review on the relationship between body mass index and major adverse outcomes in atrial fibrillation patients...

This is the case of a 25-year-old obese man who presented with acute shortness of breath, chest pain, and palpitations. Of note, he lives a sedentary lifestyle and was recently hospitalized for incision and drainage of a left foot abscess. On presentation he was tachypnoeic, tachycardiac, and hypoxic but blood pressure was stable. Laboratory studies were significant for elevated D-dimer and mildly increased troponin. On further investigation he was found to have a saddle pulmonary embolism with massive clot burden...

Massive pulmonary embolism (PE) refers to large emboli that cause hemodynamic instability, right ventricular failure, and circulatory collapse. According to the 2016 ACCP Antithrombotic Guidelines, therapy for massive PE should include systemic thrombolytic therapy in conjunction with anticoagulation and supportive care. However, in patients with a contraindication to systemic thrombolytics or in those who fail the above interventions, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and/or surgical embolectomy may be used to improve oxygenation, achieve hemodynamic stability, and successfully treat massive PE...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common, potentially fatal thrombotic disease. Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia, may also lead to thromboembolic complications. Although initially appearing as distinct entities, PE and AF may coexist. The direction and extent of this association has not been well characterized. We performed a search of PubMed, Scopus, and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews for publications that reported coexisting AF in patients with PE, or vice versa, to provide a systematic overview of pathophysiological and epidemiological aspects of this association (last search: October 13, 2016)...

To our knowledge, the effect of plasmapheresis on the antifactor Xa activity of enoxaparin has never been reported. We describe a 13-year-old, obese (92-kg) adolescent female who was treated with enoxaparin for a pulmonary embolism while receiving plasmapheresis for suspected autoimmune encephalitis, and experienced clinically significant reductions in antifactor Xa activity following plasmapheresis. She received five courses of plasmapheresis, with the final two during treatment with enoxaparin. Her antifactor Xa concentrations were highly variable, and we hypothesized that plasmapheresis was affecting these levels...

A 35-year-old morbidly obese woman with a history of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism presented for right atrial thrombectomy via AngioVac suction system. A portion of the thrombus could not be suctioned into the AngioVac cannula, leading to fragmentation and distal embolization with hemodynamic collapse. This sequence, observed in real time under transesophageal echocardiography, also demonstrated that the clot had echocardiographic features of chronicity. A well-organized chronic clot may be more difficult to extract via this method, leading to the complication described...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the maternal mortality cases attributed to pulmonary embolism (PE). PE constituted 7.58% of maternal deaths in 2013. Risk factors for PE were present in 15 (88.2%) of the women. Five women (29.4%) were overweight, and 5 (29.4%) were obese. Four women (23.5%) had cardiac diseases. PE occurred in the postpartum period after caesarean delivery in 9 (52.9%) patients. Eleven (64.7%) of the maternal deaths were recognised as preventable. More deaths attributed to PE occurred in the postpartum period (n = 11) than the antepartum period (n = 5)...
