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)
system activation and prediction of vascular events in patients presenting with stable peripheral arterial disease of moderate severity. Morrissey JH, et al. Gender-related differences in thrombo-genic factors predicting recurrent cardiac events in patients after acute myocardial infarction. Following an episode of venous thromboembolism (VTE), the risk of(More)
BACKGROUND The Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (PESI) estimates the risk of 30-day mortality in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). We constructed a simplified version of the PESI. METHODS The study retrospectively developed a simplified PESI clinical prediction rule for estimating the risk of 30-day mortality in a derivation cohort of Spanish(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical predictors for fatal pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with venous thromboembolism have never been studied. METHODS AND RESULTS Using data from the international prospective Registro Informatizado de la Enfermedad TromboEmbolica venosa (RIETE) registry about patients with objectively confirmed symptomatic acute venous(More)
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of maternal death during pregnancy or postpartum, and in women using hormonal contraceptives. However, important issues concerning its natural history and therapy remain unsolved, and most of the protocols for treatment of VTE in this patient population are based on data extrapolated from other populations.(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)
We prospectively studied 78 consecutive patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) to determine the most appropriate workup study for searching for hidden cancer. After a careful physical examination, the following tests were performed: erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), complete blood cell counts, biochemistry, carcinoembryonic antigen levels, chest(More)
Patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) presenting with haemodynamic instability have the worst prognosis. However, what is understood by haemodynamic instability has not been clearly defined. The Registro Informatizado de la Enfermedad Tromboembólica (RIETE) is an ongoing registry of consecutive patients with symptomatic, objectively confirmed, acute(More)
The incidence of colorectal cancer is growing worldwide. The characterization of compounds present in the human diet that can prevent the occurrence of colorectal tumors is vital. The oligosaccharide inulin is such a compound. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antigenotoxic, antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic effects of inulin in vivo. Our study is(More)
