LOZA, Gimena et al. Syncope and cardiorespiratory arrest, severe forms of presentation of central pulmonary embolism. Report of three clinical cases. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2021, vol.36, n.2, e402.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-0048.

Pulmonary thromboembolism has a varied clinical presentation. It is essential to have a high index of suspicion to arrive at a timely diagnosis. Syncope is associated with severe cases and is of prognostic significance. Thrombolytic treatment is the cornerstone in the subgroup of high-risk patients. Three clinical cases of high-risk pulmonary thromboembolism are presented in order to discuss the clinical presentation scenario and the established treatment.

Keywords : Pulmonary embolism; Syncope; Thrombolysis.
