Large pulmonary embolus without systemic hemodynamic consequences during cemented hip arthroplasty.

Abstract

A case is presented in which a large embolus was detected passing through the right side of the heart during total hip arthroplasty. Although tricuspid regurgitation and an elevated right ventricular pressure resulted, there was no perturbation in systemic hemodynamics or gas exchange. The emboli detected during total hip arthroplasty are most likely… (More)
