Pulmonary Embolism Interventions

Pulmonary embolism interventions include catheter directed thrombolysis, mechanical thrombectomy, and surgical embolectomy. Patient selection and device selection depend on factors such as clot characteristics and availability of data for each type of intervention.

Mechanical thrombectomy is a pulmonary embolism intervention that allows for rapid clot extraction

Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis and Imaging

Pulmonary embolism diagnosis involves risk stratification, cardiac enzyme studies, and echocardiogram and/or CT.
