Pulmonary Embolism Articles
Read our exclusive BackTable VI Articles for quick insights on pulmonary embolism, provided by physicians for physicians.
A pulmonary embolism response team (PERT) requires a multidisciplinary mindset, clear communication channels, and effective use of technology to treat life threatening pulmonary embolism cases.
Pulmonary embolism interventions include catheter-directed thrombolysis, mechanical thrombectomy, & surgical embolectomy. Patient selection, devices (i.e. EKOS catheter), tPA for pulmonary embolism, clot characteristics, & the availability of data for intervention types are covered in this article.
The Inari FlowTriever is the first mechanical thrombectomy system indicated for the treatment of pulmonary embolism. Dr. Tu and Dr. Tummala discuss the Inari FlowTriever Device, how to use it, and their technique for a successful mechanical thrombectomy procedure.
Risk stratification and mechanical thrombectomy as treatment in the paradigm shift toward non-lytic based therapies for pulmonary embolism.
