|Issue Date:||1-Jan-2020||Publisher:||Oxford University Press (OUP)||Journal:||European Heart Journal - Cardiovascular Imaging||Abstract:||Purpose: The paper was aimed to determine predictors for of patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and intermediate risk. Methods: 84 patients with PE from National registry on VTE (age 60.3 + 12.5 years) were selected in a prospective study. Bedside echocardiography was done in all of them. Pulmonary embolism was confirmed by CT angiography. They were stratified as intermediate risk pts due to simplified PESI score > 1. Study population was followed up for 6.7 months. Multivariate regression analysis was done when right ventricular diameter (RV, mean 37.5 mm), systolic pulmonary artery pressure (68 + 23 mmHg), measured by echocardiography, D-dimer level at baseline 2654.5 + 420,3ng/ml, number of comorbidities (2.4 + 0,7) and occurred symptoms (3.1 + 0,9) entered the model. A model was adjusted for age. Results: D-dimer revealed as a predictor for length of hospitalization (β 0,25, p 0,05), and RV diameter as a factor for duration of anticoagulation (β 0,29, p 0,05). Conclusion: Our results imply that baseline measurement of right ventricular diameter when added to D-dimer independently influence on short and long term prognosis of patients with pulmonary embolism and intermediate risk.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12188/8122||DOI:||10.1093/ehjci/jez319.787|
