Prognostic value of right ventricular dysfunction and pulmonary obstruction index by computed tomographic pulmonary angiography in patients with acute pulmonary embolism.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To quantify right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) and pulmonary obstruction index assessed by computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) to assess the predictive value of these CT parameters for mortality after the initial diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism (APE). MATERIAL AND METHOD In 81 consecutive patients with proved APE, two… (More)
