PRESENTED ON: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM
PURPOSE: To improve treatment and prognosis of pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) through retrospective analysis of the medical treatment and clinical outcomes
METHODS: Clinical data of 510 consecutive cases of PTE hospitalized at Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital and Tongji Hospital from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. The patients were divided into three groups based on different treatment, including anticoagulation alone group (n=418), systemic thrombolysis group (n=47) and catheter-directed therapy group (n=45). Then we analyzed and compared therapeutic effect, bleeding complication and recurrence of three groups respectively.
