Akutes Cor pulmonale und Lungenembolie

  • D. J. Beuckelmann


Das akute Cor pulmonale ist definiert als akute Druckbelastung des rechten Ventrikels durch Anstieg des systolischen Drucks in der A. Pulmonalis auf über 3o mmHg oder des Mitteldrucks auf über 20 mmHg. In den meisten Fällen liegt dem akutem Cor pulmonale eine Lungenembolie zugrunde.
