Anticoagulants should also be stopped after 3 months in patients with a proximal DVT or pulmonary … Terminology such as “provoked” vs. “unprovoked” PE/venous thromboembolism (VTE) is no longer supported by the guidelines; instead they propose using terms like “reversible risk factor,” “any persistent risk factor,” or “no identifiable risk factor.”. The Low-Risk Pulmonary Embolism (LoPE) study was designed to provide data on important outcomes related to the care of patients diagnosed with acute PE who were assessed to have a low risk for mortality based on a Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index Score (PESI) < 86, whole-leg compression ultrasound (CUS), and transthoracic echocardiography and who were appropriate for outpatient management. It acknowledges the ongoing need for dedicated clinical trials that demonstrate the differences in the pharmacokinetics, dose responses, and monitoring tests for anticoagulation therapy in children compared with adults. 2014 ESC guidelines on the diagnosis and management of acute pulmonary embolism. Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are now recommended as first choice anticoagulants over warfarin even in those who are warfarin eligible. For subsegmental pulmonary embolism and no proximal DVT, we suggest clinical surveillance over anticoagulation with a low risk of recurrent VTE (Grade 2C), and anticoagulation over clinical surveillance with a high risk (Grade 2C).
