Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to examine the incidence, case fatality rate, and characteristics of perioperative symptomatic pulmonary thromboembolism (PS-PTE) throughout Japan. Methods: From 2002 to 2011, confidential questionnaires were mailed annually to all Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists-certified training hospitals for data collection to determine the incidence and case fatality rate of PS-PTE patients. Data from 10,537 institutions in which a total of 11,786,489 surgeries had been performed were analyzed using the Mann–Whitney and Chi-square tests. Results: In total, 3,667 PS-PTE cases were identified. The average incidence of PS-PTE was 3.1 (2.2–4.8) per 10,000 surgeries, and the average case fatality rate was 17.9 % (12.9–28.8 %). The incidence of PS-PTE began to significantly decrease in 2004 compared with that of 2002 (0.0036 vs. 0.0044 %: p
