Hot topics

Aims: At the end of the session, attendees will be able to: (i) risk stratify patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE); (ii) identify patients with low-risk PE who might benefit from outpatient therapy; (iii) choose the right direct oral anticoagulant for the right patient with acute symptomatic PE; and (iv) identify patients with intermediate-risk PE who might benefit from early recanalisation procedures.
