Decline in overall pulmonary embolism-related mortality and increasing prevalence of cancer-associated events in the Veneto region (Italy), 2008-2019.

The descending trend in PE-related mortality reported for Europe up to 2015 for both sexes continued thereafter in Northern Italy, however, sex differences in proportionate mortality persist, and the increasing association between PE and cancer at death may reflect changes in risk factor distribution or diagnostic practices.

Trends in risk stratification, in-hospital management and mortality of patients with acute pulmonary embolism: an analysis from the China pUlmonary thromboembolism REgistry Study (CURES)

The considerable reduction over the years in the mortality of acute PE during hospitalisation can plausibly be associated with risk stratification-guided management, and the importance of implementing evidence-based guidelines throughout the nation is highlighted.

Evaluation of the impact of changes in the autopsy rate on mortality trend of pulmonary embolism, Finland, 1996–2017

  • 2022
The results suggest that there has been real improvement in the prevention of death from pulmonary embolism in Finland in the twenty-first century, however, due to the decreasing autopsy rate, the pulmonary emblism mortality trend after 2010 should be interpreted more carefully.

Background of fatal pulmonary embolism: an analysis of all diagnosed fatal pulmonary embolism in 2015–2018 from Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa

Pulmonary embolism (PE) mortality has decreased in the last decades but acute PE is still associated with significant fatality. Specific information on fatal PE patients could guide how to

Changing Trends in Hospital Admissions for Pulmonary Embolism in Spain from 2001 to 2018

There was an increase in the incidence of pulmonary embolism hospitalizations from 2001 to 2018 in Spain, with older patients being the most affected and the IHM significantly higher in women, in patients suffering from more comorbidities, and in those with a massive pulmonary emblism.

Pulmonary Embolism Mortality Associated with the Necessity of Being Hospitalized Outside the Canton of Residence in Ecuador

Patients treated by PE outside their canton of residence had an increased risk of mortality during the in-hospital stay, especially those younger than 60 years without ACP, and with ACP.

Management of acute pulmonary embolism 2019: what is new in the updated European guidelines?

Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are now the preferred agents for treating the majority of patients with PE, both in the acute phase (with or without a brief lead-in period of parenteral heparin or fondaparinux) and over the long term.



Pulmonary embolism mortality in the United States, 1979-1998: an analysis using multiple-cause mortality data.

Mortality with PTE in the United States has decreased during the 20-year period, and the mortality rates between men and women and between racial groups vary substantially.

Epidemiology report: trends in sex-specific cerebrovascular disease mortality in Europe based on WHO mortality data

Findings highlight the need for continued research into the inequalities in both current stroke mortality outcomes and trends across Europe, as well as the causes behind any recent plateauing of total cerebrovascular disease or its subtypes.

Trends in Mortality From Ischemic Heart Disease and Cerebrovascular Disease in Europe: 1980 to 2009

There is a growing disparity in cardiovascular mortality between Western and Eastern Europe, and the need for population-wide health promotion and primary prevention policies is emphasized.

Time trends and case fatality rate of in-hospital treated pulmonary embolism during 11 years of observation in Northwestern Italy.

Time trends over an 11-year period show an increasing incidence of PE, but a significant reduction in mortality during hospitalisation, and reduction in the case fatality rate remained significant after adjustment for possible confounders.

Acute Pulmonary Embolism in a National Danish Cohort: Increasing Incidence and Decreasing Mortality.

In Denmark, the annual incidence of acute PE has increased during the past decade from 45 to 83 per 100,000 adults with a significant decrease in both short- and long-term mortalities.

Increasing mortality from pulmonary embolism in Japan, 1951-2000.

Overall, mortality from PE in Japan increased significantly during 1951 to 2000, and the relative risk of death from PE was increased in males, the aged, and in recent years.

Trends in age-specific coronary heart disease mortality in the European Union over three decades: 1980–2009

There was little evidence to support the hypothesis that mortality rates have recently begun to plateau in younger age groups in the EU as a whole, although such plateaus and even a small number of increases in CHD mortality in younger subpopulations were observed in a minority of countries.
