A Prospective Study for the Treatment of Severe Pulmonary Embolism With Pharmacodynamic Thrombectomy

2020-03-27 03:25:33 | BioPortfolio


The mortality of severe pulmonary embolisms admitted to the resuscitation department for circulatory failure remains in the range of 30-40% at the acute phase. Hemodynamic failure is the leading cause of death. These patients frequently have a contraindication to thrombolysis. Surgical pulmonary arterial desobstruction still leads to significant hospital mortality and can't be implemented in all hospitals. Concerning advanced hemodynamic support techniques, they can't always reduce mortality on themselves. There is therefore a need for developing alternative approaches for less invasive pulmonary arterial desobstruction. Data on the efficacy and safety of percutaneous methods of desobstruction are still too limited to implement them in current practice.

AngioJet ™ PE is a device CE marked for intra-arterial desobstruction of pulmonary arteries. It has been successfully tested in more than 25 patients with pulmonary embolism in France. Before considering a request for reimbursement from the HAS it is necessary to have propective data of sufficient quality. This phase 2a prospective study is proposed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the AngioJet ™ PE catheter use. The resulting data will allow us to submit a Phase 3 controlled study to an upcoming PHRC-type project call.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A competitive histamine H2-receptor antagonist. Its main pharmacodynamic effect is the inhibition of gastric secretion.
