Submassive Pulmonary Embolism Experience With EKOS

2016-10-07 00:08:22 | BioPortfolio


This single site study evaluates the efficacy of ultrasound accelerated thrombolysis using EKOS Endovascular Device with a standard infusion of thrombolytics for treatment of PE


Previous clinical trials examining thrombolytics used to treat Acute Submassive PE, many times will use fixed dose and duration. Little research has been conducted on the physiologic implication of resolution of symptoms. It seems reasonable, that symptomatic relief results from some degree of hemodynamic normalization. This study will seek to examine the extent to which the hemodynamic impairment is normalized from a thrombolytic treatment protocol with an endpoint of therapy determined as resolution of presenting symptoms. Treatment plans will utilize the MBS (Modified Borg Scale) score to help evaluate and measure outcome-based care, quantifying shortness of breath.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Use of infusions of fibrinolytic agents to destroy or dissolve thrombi in blood vessels or bypass grafts.

Streptococcal fibrinolysin . An enzyme produced by hemolytic streptococci. It hydrolyzes amide linkages and serves as an activator of plasminogen. It is used in thrombolytic therapy and is used also in mixtures with streptodornase (STREPTODORNASE AND STREPTOKINASE). EC 3.4.-.

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
