BACKGROUND No published data have systematically documented pulmonary artery pressure over an intermediate time period after submassive pulmonary embolism (PE). The aim of this work was to document the rate of pulmonary hypertension, as assessed noninvasively by estimated right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP) of >or= 40 mm Hg 6 months after the diagnosis of submassive PE. METHODS We enrolled 200 normotensive patients with CT angiography-proven PE and a baseline echocardiogram to estimate… CONTINUE READING
