OBJECTIVES To investigate the presence of lower limb deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and prognosis in patients with symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 203 consecutive referral patients with PE were included. The distribution of DVT was evaluated with compression ultrasound (CUS), and all patients were then followed for 12 months for investigation of recurrence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and fatal events as adverse outcome.
