Abstract

Bedside pulmonary arteriography can detect morphological changes of pulmonary thromboembolism. Parenteral solutions should be heparinized to prevent pulmonary embolism in the neonate. The possibility of carcinoma should be raised in patients with acute pulmonary thromboembolism. When the mean pulmonary pressure is below 30 mm of mercury the prognosis in pulmonary thromboembolism is good. Pulmonary infarction may lead to a post infarction syndrome similar to Dressler's syndrome. In patients with pulmonary thromboembolism the parenchymal opacifications seen in the chest film could be due to hypertension of the vascular bed. Pulmonary angiography is not mandatory in all patients suspected of having pulmonary thromboembolism. Heparin therapy continues to be best way of prophylaxis and management of pulmonary thromboembolism. Fibrinolytic enzymes should be restricted to patients with massive pulmonary thromboembolism and to those with hemodynamic instability. Pleural hemorrhage should be treated rapidly to prevent lung decortication.
