Prognostic value of #D-dimer for adverse outcomes in patients with infective #endocarditis: an observational study

Increased D-dimer levels have been shown to correlate with adverse outcomes in various clinical conditions. However, few studies with a large sample size have been performed thus far to evaluate the prognostic value of D-dimer in patients with infective endocarditis (IE). Methods613 patients with IE were included in the study and categorized into two groups …

Diagnosis of Pulmonary #Embolism with d-#Dimer Adjusted to Clinical Probability

Retrospective analyses suggest that pulmonary embolism is ruled out by a d-dimer level of less than 1000 ng per milliliter in patients with a low clinical pretest probability (C-PTP) and by a d-dimer level of less than 500 ng per milliliter in patients with a moderate C-PTP ..We performed a prospective study in which pulmonary …
