BACKGROUND Ultrasound lung comets (ULCs) consist of multiple comet tails originating from water-thickened interlobular septa. They are a new echographic tool to assess the pathologic increase in extravascular lung water, which is a possible harbinger of impending acute heart failure. The objective was to assess the prognostic value of ULCs in patients with dyspnea and/or chest pain syndrome at hospital admission. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 290 consecutive in-hospital patients (aged 68… CONTINUE READING
