The Low-Risk Pulmonary Embolism (LoPE) study was designed to provide data on important outcomes related to the care of patients diagnosed with acute PE who were assessed to have a low risk for mortality based on a Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index Score (PESI) < 86, whole-leg compression ultrasound (CUS), and transthoracic echocardiography and who were appropriate for outpatient management. Incidental pulmonary embolism (PE) is a frequent finding on routine computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest, occurring in 1.1% of coronary CT scans and 3.6% of oncological CT scans. Venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) is estimated to occur in at least 1 to 2 persons per 1000 population annually, manifesting as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE) or in combination.1-3 It is the cause of over 100,000 deaths annually and is the most preventable cause of death in hospitalized patients in the United States.4 Despite treatment with anticoagulant therapy, a significant proportion of survivors of acute DVT or PE are at risk of suffering from the disabling sequela… A dedicated diagnostic algorithm is proposed for suspected PE in pregnancy.
