Pulmonary Embolism

Majority of Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PE) results from clot fragmentation of lower limb Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) . Non-invasive testing of the lower limb, such as Compression Ultrasonography (CUS), is the gold standard for the routine diagnosis of DVT. Free-Floating Thrombus (FFT) is present in 10-26% of thrombi detected with ultrasound and is often considered being a risk factor for PE in patients with DVT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in the medical literature on 3 cases illustrating the detrimental consequence of mechanical compression effect on lower limb DVT. Using Doppler sonography, vein patency can be evaluated with dynamic tests that increase or accelerate venous flow: compression of muscles upstream from the probe or limb rising produces enhanced Doppler signals in normal veins. A free-floating thrombus (FFT) may be detected in 10-26% of thrombi detected with ultrasound and is considered a risk factor for pulmonary embolism . Few cases where dislodged FFT caused PE have been reported. Anne AL Hsu, Pulmonary Embolism-A Mechanical Compression Effect on Lower Limb Deep Venous Thrombosis Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
