“…the best book I’ve seen on this topic”
-- William C. Roberts, MD, Editor in Chief of the American Journal of Cardiology, in a review of the first edition


This second edition supplies the latest information on epidemiology, methods of diagnosis, preferred diagnostic pathways, new medications, and new recommendations for prophylaxis and treatment of pulmonary embolism and its immediate cause, deep vein thrombosis.


Pulmonary Embolism, Second Edition, incorporates important data from the recent Prospective Investigation of Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis II (PIOPED II), including:


new clinical observations
accuracy of multidetector computed tomography for the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism
recommendations for the use of various imaging tests according to the characteristics of the patient

Every chapter of the book has been revised and updated, and 56 new chapters appear in this edition. Through the writing ability of its single author, the text remains as easy to read as it is to consult.


This book is a timely reference and a dependable resource for in-depth information about pulmonary embolism.
