2019 Guidelines on Acute Pulmonary Embolism (Diagnosis and Management of)
ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines
This document follows the previous ESC guidelines focusing on the clinical management of pulmonary embolism (PE) published in 2000, 2008, and 2014. Many recommendations have been retained or their validity has been reinforced; however, new data have extended or modified our knowledge in respect of the optimal diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of patients with PE.
These new aspects have been integrated into previous knowledge to suggest optimal and — whenever possible — objectively validated management strategies for patients with suspected or confirmed PE.
