Abstract

Introduction: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is the most important prognostic factor after acute pulmonary embolism (PE). Therefore, determination of patients who will develop PH after acute PE is crucial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the predictive value of the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores for PH in patients with acute PE.
