abstract = "Importance: Sparse data and conflicting evidence exist on the prevalence of pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with syncope.Objective: To estimate the prevalence of PE among patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) for evaluation of syncope.Design, Setting, and Participants: This retrospective, observational study analyzed longitudinal administrative data from 5 databases in 4 different countries (Canada, Denmark, Italy, and the United States). Data from all adult patients (aged ≥18 years) who presented to the ED were screened to identify those with syncope codes at discharge. Data were collected from January 1, 2000, through September 30, 2016.Main Outcomes and Measures: The prevalence of PE at ED and hospital discharge, identified using codes from the International Classification of Diseases, was considered the primary outcome. Two sensitivity analyses considering prevalence of PE at 90 days of follow-up and prevalence of venous thromboembolism were performed.Results: A total of 1 671 944 unselected adults who presented to the ED for syncope were included. The prevalence of PE, according to administrative data, ranged from 0.06{\%} (95{\%} CI, 0.05{\%}-0.06{\%}) to 0.55{\%} (95{\%} CI, 0.50{\%}-0.61{\%}) for all patients and from 0.15{\%} (95{\%} CI, 0.14{\%}-0.16{\%}) to 2.10{\%} (95{\%} CI, 1.84{\%}-2.39{\%}) for hospitalized patients.
