High-Intensity Interval Training in Patients with Pulmonary Embolism: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Conclusions The present RCT of a tailored center-based HIIT intervention provides preliminary evidence that this intervention could improve exercise capacity, lung function, RV function, and HRQoL without serious adverse events, which could provide marked clinical benefits after PE. Further larger multicenter randomized controlled studies are needed to confirm these promising findings.

A BLOOD clot travelling towards the lungs, and then proceeding to block the blood vessel there is known as a pulmonary embolism. Such a "very serious" event could risk your life, the British Lung Foundation said.

Approximately 0.85% of patients requiring non-elective surgery in the U.S. receive preoperative transfusion of packed red blood cells (PRBCs). In addition, approximately 0.32% of patients requiring non-elective surgery are subsequently found to have a Pulmonary Embolism (PE), an outcome with an untreated mortality greater than 30%. We investigated the association between preoperative PRBC transfusion and postoperative PE.

Risk assessment profile (RAP) is a risk stratification method for trauma patients to determine when deep vein thrombosis (DVT) screening, by lower extremity doppler ultrasound (LEUS), is indicated. Early diagnosis of DVT leads to early treatment, reducing the risk of pulmonary embolism. This quality improvement project objective was to evaluate RAP of ≥8 for positive screening and to evaluate patient characteristics between those with or without DVT.

The PSI 90, is used to monitor hospital safety, quality, and value. It is composed predominantly of PSI 9 (perioperative hemorrhage), 11 (postoperative respiratory failure), 12 (perioperative deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolus), and 13 (postoperative sepsis). MIS has been shown to have fewer complications. We aim to evaluate the rates of PSI between MIS in common procedures.

Although deep vein thrombosis, as well as subsequent pulmonary embolism, is one of the major and fatal complications in cases of malignant neoplasm, it most often occurs after the diagnosis or treatment of the tumor. On the other hand, malignant tumors that develop with deep vein thrombosis as a specific initial symptom are extremely rare. Here, we report a case of angiosarcoma of the iliac vein, whose initial symptom was dyspnea due to pulmonary embolism. Although angiosarcoma arising directly from major blood vessels is rare, literature reviews, as well as our case, indicate that thromboembolism is an important initial s...

Purpose of review The aim of this study is to summarize currently available catheter-based therapies in acute and chronic pulmonary embolic disease. Recent findings Catheter-based therapies to treat acute pulmonary embolism and its sequelae such as chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) are emerging as the next frontier within interventional cardiology. However, the true benefit of these catheter-based therapies in intermediate-risk and high-risk pulmonary embolism and CTEPH remains unclear. The current evidence supporting such interventions comes primarily from small single-arm studies in acute p...

Purpose of review In the past decades, the diagnostic and therapeutic management of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) has been revolutionized. Recent findings Advances in epidemiological knowledge and follow-up studies of pulmonary embolism patients have provided more insight in the incidence and prevalence. Improved diagnostic imaging techniques allow accurate assessment of the location and extend of the thromboembolic burden in the pulmonary artery tree, which is important for the determination of the optimal treatment strategy. Next to the pulmonary endarterectomy, the newly introduced tec...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE), encompassing pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is encountered commonly. Acute PE may present as a high-risk cardiovascular emergency, and acute DVT can cause acute and chronic vascular complications. The goal of this review is to ensure that cardiologists are comfortable managing VTE —including risk stratification, anticoagulation therapy, and familiarity with primary reperfusion therapy. Clinical assessment and determination of degree of right ventricular dysfunction are critical in initial risk stratification of PE and determination of parenteral versus oral antic...
