PMID:  20495478     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two young adults had similar presentations of Ewing sarcoma, with spinal cord involvement and significant neurologic deficits. Shortly after workup, stabilization, and initiation of chemotherapy, both developed acute saddle pulmonary embolism, despite prophylactic anticoagulation. In both cases, prompt intravenous thrombolysis and therapeutic anticoagulation successfully managed this complication. Review of the presentation, treatment options, and most current guidelines for acute saddle pulmonary embolism follow the case presentations.
