Pulmonary Embolism

Stein PD, Beemath A, Matta F et al.

St Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital, Pontiac, MI, USA.

 Am J Med 2008;121:34–42.

Editor’s note: The majority of patients with pulmonary embolism can be satisfactorily treated with heparin and warfarin. A minority of patients with large pulmonary emboli have right ventricular dysfunction (RVD), and in these individuals thrombolitic therapy with streptokinase or tissue plasminogen activator is often used.
