Pulmonary Embolism in Patients Hospitalized for Exacerbated COPD and Wheezing

87 patients (71 males, mean age: 67.1 ± 11.2 years, 32 GOLD stage-III and 24 GOLD stage-IV patients) had an interpretable spiral CT angiography which showed eight right and five bilateral unsuspected PEs. Deep vein thrombosis was found in nine patients (associated with PE in three). The prevalence of PE and venous thromboembolism (VTE) occurred respectively in 14.9% and 21.8%. No statistical differences were found between risk factors, Geneva score or clinical signs in patients with and without PE. PE was not related to the severity of COPD.
