BACKGROUND In haemodynamically stable patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE), studies have not evaluated the usefulness of combining the measurement of cardiac troponin, transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE), and lower extremity complete compression ultrasound (CCUS) testing for predicting the risk of PE-related death. METHODS The study(More)
This work at ®rst look discusses the in¯uence of the tool path strategy on the cycle time of high-speed milling operations. Experiments and predictions were focused on pocketing operations with a zigzag tool path, quantifying the signi®cant discrepancy between the programmed feed rate and the actual average feed rate. A mechanistic approach for cycle time(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain a realistic overview of management and clinical outcomes of patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) in Spain on the basis of data from a national multicenter registry. METHODS A prospective registry was initiated in Spain in March 2001. Data were collected from patients with objectively confirmed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or(More)
In patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE), the outcome during the course of anticoagulant therapy may differ according to the patient's sex. We used the RIETE (Registro Informatizado Enfermedad TromboEmbólica) database to compare the rate of VTE recurrences, major bleeding, and mortality due to these events according to sex.As of August 2013, 47,499(More)
In cancer patients treated for venous thromboembolism (VTE), including deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), analyzing mortality associated with recurrent VTE or major bleeding is needed to determine the optimal duration of anticoagulation.This was a cohort study using the Registro Informatizado de Enfermedad TromboEmbólica (RIETE)(More)
BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major health problem, with over one million events every year in Europe. However, there is a paucity of data on the current management in real life, including factors influencing treatment pathways, patient satisfaction, quality of life (QoL), and utilization of health care resources and the corresponding costs.(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have a modified clinical presentation of venous thromboembolism (VTE) but also a worse prognosis than non-COPD patients with VTE. As it may induce therapeutic modifications, we evaluated the influence of the initial VTE presentation on the 3-month outcomes in COPD patients. METHODS COPD(More)
BACKGROUND In cancer patients with symptomatic venous thromboembolism (VTE) (deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE)), clinical factors that influence the benefit-risk balance of anticoagulation need to be identified so treatment intensity and duration can be optimally adjusted for the individual patient. METHODS Using clinical data for(More)
