Abstract

PULIDO, Tomás et al. Management of acute pulmonary thromboembolism. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2012, vol.82, n.1, pp. 48-53. ISSN 1405-9940.

Acute pulmonary embolism (APE) is considered a cardiovascular emergency and is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. Pulmonary embolism diagnosis has to be made early in the course of the disease and its management installed immediately. Pulmonary embolism management includes hemodynamic support, anticoagulation, thrombolysis and embolectomy. We present an overview of the treatment of APE.
