Pulmonary embolism associated with inferior vena cava interruption: multidetector computed tomography findings.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  20498625     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
We report a patient with congenital interruption of the inferior vena cava complicated by pulmonary embolism. In this study, we review the clinical and imaging features of this entity and also present a review of the literature on this topic. This rare pulmonary embolism complication can be easily detected on multidetector computed tomography using a wider scan range.
