Management of Clot in Transit: Challenges & Solutions

Through the lens of different case studies, Dr. Rehan Quadri underscores critical elements to successfully treating clot in transit, including pre-procedural planning and equipment competency. He also dives into two common challenges when treating clot in transit: concomitant pulmonary embolism and shunts.

Clot in Transit: Definition, Diagnosis & Decision Making

Dr. Rehan Quadri discusses the indications for treating patients with, what he calls, “clot in transit”. Using real examples from his experiences as a new attending at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Quadri outlines the clinical course for patients with clot in transit, from diagnosis to management.

Pulmonary embolism response team meeting to discuss an acute pulmonary embolism case

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.

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

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.

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

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

Inari FlowTriever prodedure showing a pigtail catheter placement for the removal of pulmonary embolus

The Inari FlowTriever is the first mechanical thrombectomy system indicated for the treatment of pulmonary embolism. Dr. Tu and Dr. Tummala discuss how to use it and their techniques.

Mechanical Thrombectomy Pulmonary Embolism

The treatment of pulmonary embolism (PE) continues to evolve. We discuss risk stratification and examine the role of a pulmonary embolism mechanical thrombectomy for treatment.
