Candidates for IVC filter placement are those patients who have DVT within proximal deep veins and have contraindications to anticoagulant therapy, recurrence or extension of VTE despite adequate anticoagulation, and inability to achieve or maintain therapeutic anticoagulation.Similar to the advent of CTA, recent advancements in imaging protocols and magnetic resonance technology have led to shorter acquisition times and improved spatial resolution, raising the possibility of using magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in the diagnosis of PE.In the past, it was thought that a normal alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient excluded PE.Diagnostic value of the electrocardiogram in suspected pulmonary embolism.
However, a recent study by Bajaj et al 77 showed that this ECG pattern was found in only 6% of patients with PE, and, in a study by Rodger et al, 79 this S1Q3T3 pattern is nonspecific and can be seen in patients with or without PE.The DENALI trial: an interim analysis of a prospective, multicenter study of the Denali retrievable inferior vena cava filter.The main treatment for pulmonary embolism is anticoagulant therapy.Comparison of the revised Geneva score with the Wells rule for assessing clinical probability of pulmonary embolism.

Experience with the Cardial inferior vena cava filter as prophylaxis against pulmonary embolism in pregnant women with extensive deep venous thrombosis.This treatment for massive pulmonary embolism has a high success rate.
In patients whose catheter is removed or if the UE DVT is not associated with a catheter, a 3-month duration of anticoagulation treatment is recommended.After 1998, the incidence of PE increased significantly from 62.3 to 112.3 per 100 000.Acute Pulmonary Embolism Trial confirms safety and efficacy of ultrasound accelerated endovascular thrombolysis. 2014.

The incidence of pulmonary embolism rises with age, however, as does pulmonary embolism mortality.A recent study by Kline and Stubblefield 58 compared a clinical gestalt with pretest probability scoring and found that even though clinicians tended to overestimated their pretest probability with a clinical gestalt, diagnostic accuracy for PE was similar to that of scoring systems.In addition, thrombolysis should be considered for all hemodynamically unstable patients with pulmonary embolism, regardless of age.Duplex ultrasound searches for DVT by visualizing the veins and evaluating their compressibility (Figures 6 and 7).
Inherited hypercoagulable states include factor V Leiden mutation, protein C or S deficiency, antithrombin deficiency, and a prothrombin gene mutation.
