Aim: Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a condition caused by thrombosis and is a common cause of death. Although there are studies of PE with CHA2DS2-VASc (C: congestive heart failure or left ventricular systolic dysfunction, H: hypertension, A: age of >= 75 years, D: diabetes mellitus, S: previous stroke, V: vascular disease, A: age between 65 and 74 years, Sc: female gender) and PE severity index (PESI) scores, there is no data on Anticoagulation and Risk Factors in Atrial Fibrillation (ATRIA) score in PE or comparison of CHA2DS2-VASc and ATRIA scores in PE. We investigated whether ATRIA and CHA2DS2-VASc scores can predict PE and mortality in cases of PE.
