The natural course of acute pulmonary embolism depends primarily on whether the embolism has been detected and treated [1-4]. The haemodynamic severity of acute pulmonary embolism largely depends on the previous state of the cardiopuLmonary system in patients without any previous cardiopulmonary di ease [1, 5], the degree of haemodynamic severity (e.g. that of pulmonary hypertension) depends exclusively on the extent of embolic obstruction [1, 4, 6]. Other factors effecting the natural course… CONTINUE READING
