Comparison of Mortality Risk Factors in Elderly and Young Pulmonary Embolism Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.147
Synopsis: 
Pulmonary embolism(PE) has a high mortality, particularly in the elderly patients. Higher sPESI, presence of co-morbidities, as well as high BUN and CRP levels are associated with increased mortality risk in elderly PE cases.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine clinical, radiological, and laboratory findings as well as mortality rates in younger and older patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and investigate risk factors associated with mortality in elderly patients.

Predictive Value of Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio and Wells Score in Patients with Pulmonary Embolism after Trauma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.483
Synopsis: 
Trauma patients have a high risk of pulmonary embolism. In this study, the neutrophil lymphocytes ratio in peripheral blood and the Wells score were found to be effective in predicting pulmonary embolism in trauma patients.
