The primary aim of this study is to evaluate whether mid dose (safe dose) of Alteplase in addition to standard treatment with heparin (LMWH) in patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) at int...
This registry is designed to understand acoustic pulse thrombolysis (APT) treatment used as standard of care across globally for pulmonary embolism. The registry will include individuals w...
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
The trial is an open-label, randomized, trial examining novel biomarkers of thrombosis in patients managed with rivaroxaban vs. standard care following treatment of pulmonary embolism (PE)...
This trial is being conducted to assess the efficacy and safety of recombinant Human Prourokinase in the acute pulmonary embolism.
Recent evidence suggests that half-dose thrombolysis for pulmonary embolism may provide similar efficacy with reduced bleeding risk compared with full-dose therapy, but comparative studies are lacking...
: Acute pulmonary embolism is a common disease, which is associated with high mortality and morbidity. There is significant relationship between haptoglobin and pulmonary embolism, however, the useful...
Both the YEARS algorithm and the pulmonary embolism (PE) rule-out criteria (PERC) were created to exclude PE with limited diagnostic tests. A diagnostic strategy combining both scores might save ad...
Little data exist regarding the functional capacity of patients following acute pulmonary embolism. We sought to characterize the natural history of symptom burden, right ventricular (RV) structure an...
The pulmonary embolism rule out criteria (PERC) reliably predicts a low probability of PE in adults. We examine the diagnostic accuracy of the objective components of the PERC rule in children previou...
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.
An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.
Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
