Authors: Spurzem JR, Geraci SA
Pulmonary embolus is a common reason for hospitalization and requires close follow-up and management in the office setting. The main issues facing the clinician include determination of the appropriate anticoagulation regimen, how long to anticoagulate, and whether an evaluation for hypercoagulable states is indicated. The decisions will depend on individual patient factors and assessment of the risks and benefits for that patient.
