Yonsei Medical Journal, 04/13/2012
Lee M et al. – In this study of Korean patients, about half of the patients with idiopathic pulmonary embolism (iPE) had Hereditary thrombophilia (HT). Patients with iPE and HT were mostly young males with deep venous thrombosis (DVT), previous venous thromboembolism (VTE), and frequent adverse clinical outcomes. Therefore, Korean patients with iPE should be tested for HT.
