Background Currently, guidelines do not recommend any standard approach for treatment of pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) at outpatient setting. We investigated the efficacy and safety of a 90-day anticoagulant treatment of outpatients diagnosed with PTE who had negative troponin levels and low-risk simplified pulmonary embolism severity index (sPESI) at presentation.
