Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy using the FlowTriever System (Inari Medical, Irvine, California) in a prospective trial of patients with acute intermediate-risk pulmonary embolism (PE). Background Catheter-directed thrombolysis has been shown to improve right ventricular (RV) function in patients with PE. However, catheter-directed thrombolysis increases bleeding risk and many patients with PE have rel...

Abstract Background: Few contemporary studies have assessed the management and outcomes of patients with massive and submassive pulmonary embolism. Given advances in therapy, we report contemporary practice patterns and event rates among these patients. Methods: We analyzed a prospective database of patients with massive and submassive pulmonary embolism. We report clinical characteristics, therapies and outcomes stratified by pulmonary embolism type. Treatment escalation beyond systemic anticoa...

Essentials The minimal clinically important difference (MCID) for PEmbQoL has not yet been determined. We estimated the MCID for PEmbQoL and its subscales via anchor- and distribution-based approaches. Our results indicate that MCID for PEmbQoL appears to be 15 points. Our work enables interpretation of changes or differences in PEmbQoL. Summary: Background Pulmonary embolism (PE) reduces quality of life (QOL). The PEmbQoL questionnaire, a PE-related QOL measure, was recently developed and valid...

Background: The incidence and risk factors of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) after acute pulmonary embolism (PE) were still controversial. A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to assess the incidence and risk factors of CTEPH after acute PE. Methods: Embase, Medline, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang databases, and various reference lists were searched to identify studies published up to May 2018. Only cohort studies that used right heart cath...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to determine the lowest optimal tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) dose and delivery duration using ultrasound-facilitated catheter-directed thrombolysis (USCDT) for the treatment of acute intermediate-risk (submassive) pulmonary embolism. Background Previous trials of USCDT used tPA over 12 to 24 h at doses of 20 to 24 mg for acute pulmonary embolism. Methods Hemodynamically stable adults with acute intermediate-risk pulmonary embolism documented by...

Management of intermediate and high risk acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is challenging. The role of multidisciplinary teams for the care of these patients is emerging. Herein, we report our experience with a pulmonary embolism response team (PERT). We conducted a retrospective chart review on all patients admitted to the Cleveland Clinic main campus who required activation of the (PERT) from October 1, 2014 to September 1, 2016. We extracted data pertaining to clinical presentation, bleeding comp...

Abstract Purpose To evaluate the feasibility of aspiration thrombectomy in patients with acute massive or submassive pulmonary embolism (PE). Materials and Methods This prospective study analyzed patient demographic data, procedural details, and outcomes in 18 consecutive patients (8 men and 10 women; mean age, 60.1 y; range, 36–80 y), 10 with acute submassive PE and 8 with massive PE, treated with an Indigo Continuous Aspiration Mechanical Thrombectomy Catheter between January 2016 and February...

Abstract null null Clinicians have been more and more often encountering patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE), including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, leading to the increased importance of VTE in daily clinical practice. VTE is becoming a common issue in Asian countries including Japan. The management strategies of VTE have changed dramatically in the past decade including the introduction of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). In addition, there have been several landmark ...

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening condition with high mortality rates and potential long-term sequelae. Systemic thrombolysis has been virtually the only therapeutic option available for patients with hemodynamic instability over decades. Recently, interventional therapy of PE has gained increasing interest. Multiple devices were developed; these include devices for local thrombolysis, thrombus fragmentation, thrombus aspiration, and combined approaches. However, the available ...

Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been used to treat acute massive pulmonary embolism (PE) patients. However, the incremental benefit of ECMO to standard therapy remains unclear. Our meta-analysis objective is to compare in-hospital mortality in patients treated for acute massive PE with and without ECMO. The National Library of Medicine MEDLINE (USA), Web of Science, and PubMed databases from inception through October 2020 were searched. Screening identified 1002 publi...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the utility of a modified (i.e., without the variable “Age >80 years”) simplified Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (sPESI) in elderly patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE), and to derive and validate a refined version of the sPESI for identification of elderly patients at low risk of adverse events. Methods The study included normotensive patients aged >80 years with acute PE enrolled in the RIETE registry. We used multivariable logistic regressi...

The systemic or catheter-directed infusion of thrombolytics benefits patients with massive and probably submassive pulmonary embolism. However, the risk of bleeding may offset benefits in a substantial number of patients. Percutaneous mechanical thromboembolectomy is an alternative to thrombolysis in those patients with contraindications to the lytic therapy, also potentially a way to avoid systemic or catheter-directed infusion of the thrombolytic all together. The Inari FlowTriever System (Ina...
