Pulmonary embolism at the University Hospital Campus of Lome Togo : a retrospective study about 51 cases. Introduction: this study provides an analysis of the evolutionary, clinical and epidemiological aspects of pulmonary embolism at the University Hospital Campus of Lome. Methods: we conducted a retrospective, analytic and descriptive study over a period of 39 months November 1 , January 31, All the medical records of patients hospitalized for PE in the Department of Cardiology at the University Hospital Campus were analyzed. Results: the prevalence of PE was 3. The average age was

DOI: The objective was to retrospectively evaluate computed tomographic CT cardiovascular parameters as predictor of 3-month mortality in patients with clinically non-severe pulmonary embolism PE. CT were independently reviewed by two observers for clot burden and cardiovascular CT parameters.

Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis in Pregnancy: How BicĂȘtre Hospital Overcomes Imaging Challenges

Identify all heart abnormalities discovered on chest computed tomography angiographies made for suspected pulmonary embolism PE. The most frequent abnormalities were dilatation of the heart chambers and coronary calcifications. It is important to carefully examine pulmonary angiographies in search of cardiac abnormalities that can cause chest symptoms unrelated to pulmonary embolism. Previous Article CV2i Editorial board. Journal page Archives Contents list. Fockyee, C. Beigelman, S.


Alfredo Cantarinha, Prof. With a mortality rate at approximately 25 percent, pulmonary embolism PE is one of the leading causes of maternal death during pregnancy and postpartum. Moreover, foetuses are especially sensitive to dose. Over-diagnosis may also result in treatments that might be dangerous for the unborn child and the mother. Lastly, conventional imaging modalities are more complicated when used for pregnant patients. When PE is suspected, a computed tomography CT scan may be recommended in some countries as a quick response. Diagnosing cases of PE presents particular challenges, however; pregnancy-related physiological changes have the potential to impair image quality to such an extent that a diagnosis may no longer be possible.

To retrospectively describe findings obtained by CTPA in patients with suspected PE during a two-year period 1st of January, to 31st of December, in the emergency department of a tertiary teaching hospital, and to describe populations associated with the various diagnosis categories: PE, non-PE with significant abnormalities, non-PE with non-relevant abnormalities, and normal CTPA.
