Outpatient clinic for pulmonary embolism (focus on pulmonary embolism aftercare)

 

 

Follow-up care of patients who have suffered an episode of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) has been optimized in recent years on the basis of important new findings from clinical and epidemiological research. The PE outpatient clinic at the University Medical Center Mainz offers comprehensive check-ups to monitor and adjust the patients’ anticoagulant treatment, identify possible late complications after acute pulmonary embolism and, if necessary, initiate targeted therapy. The outpatient clinic is attached to the premises of the coagulation outpatient clinic in CTH building 403, on the ground floor. The coagulation outpatient clinic of the CTH is run in cooperation with the 3rd Clinic for Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology (Prof. M. Theobald).

The range of diagnostic services provided by the PE outpatient clinic encompasses clinical, functional (6-minute walking test, ECG, echocardiography, cardiopulmonary exercise testing), and laboratory diagnostics (including thrombophilia and advanced coagulation tests). Ventilation-perfusion scintigraphy and advanced imaging techniques (computed tomography and magnetic resonance pulmonary angiography) are performed as appropriate and followed, in case of abnormal findings, by right heart catheterization. The diagnostic examinations are carried out - on an outpatient or inpatient basis - in cooperation with the Department of Cardiology I (Prof. T. Münzel), the Department of Cardiology III-Angiology (Prof. C. Espinola- Klein), the Clinic for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology (Prof. C. Düber) and the Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (Prof. K. Lackner).
