PMID:  6355682     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The diagnosis of pulmonary emboli may be difficult or delayed because of the clinical similarity to other acute medical events or from superimposed embolic phenomena in patients with pre-existing pulmonary and cardiovascular disease. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, and medical and surgical intervention in patients with massive emboli are discussed.
