SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease - PE/DVT

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Echocardiographic assessment of right ventricular (RV) function is frequently used in the assessment of patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). RV dysfunction associated with PE is independently associated with increased risk of adverse events including death. 2-dimensional right ventricular strain (RVS) may add prognostic information to traditional echocardiographic parameters of RV size and function. We sought to describe RVS pattern in individuals presenting with intermediate to high-risk PE, compare to those who received catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT), and analyze the post-treatment RVS pattern.
