2014-07-23 21:09:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A prospective observational study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness data of catheter-directed therapy (CDT) including percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) for treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (PE)

Description

The primary objective of this study is to capture high quality patient safety and effectiveness data on CDT for acute PE. The goal will be achieved by capturing a concise set of immediate and short-term functional and clinical outcome data for PE patients undergoing CDT.

Secondary study objectives include the following:

- To assess and benchmark clinical practice patterns (patient selection, optimal technique, use of procedure worldwide)

These objectives will be achieved through the capture of selected process data for patients included in the registry. Data collected in this study may also be used to develop and refine standards of care for use of CDT for PE and to facilitate the design of randomized clinical trials

Surgical Pulmonary Embolectomy Versus Catheter-directed Thrombolysis in the Treatment of Pulmonary Embolism: A Non-inferiority Study

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a serious and potentially lethal condition. The clinical spectrum of PE spans from asymptomatic PE to patients with severe hemodynamic compromise. The main...

Arixtra PE Study- Outpatient Management of Stable Acute Pulmonary Embolism: Once Daily Subcutaneous Fondaparinux

ULTRAsound-assisted Catheter vs. STAndaRd Catheter Thrombolysis for Submassive Pulmonary Embolism

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) accounts for 5-10% of in-hospital deaths. Systemic anticoagulation (AC) is the standard of care and thrombolysis is recommended for those at a higher mortalit...

Comparison of Standard CDT vs. USAT for Patients With Acute Submassive PE

The study will compare standard catheter directed thrombolysis to ultrasound accelerated thrombolysis for the treatment of acute submassive pulmonary embolism (PE). The study population wi...

PEITHO Pulmonary Embolism Thrombolysis Study

Catheter Directed Thrombolysis for Intermediate Risk Pulmonary Embolism.

Intermediate risk pulmonary embolism is common and carries a risk of progression to hemodynamic collapse and death. Catheter directed thrombolysis is an increasingly utilized treatment option, based l...

Pulmonary embolism attenuation is a potential imaging biomarker for pulmonary artery hemodynamic improvement after catheter-directed thrombolysis.

This study examined the potential correlation between pulmonary embolism (PE) attenuation on computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) and pulmonary artery hemodynamic response to catheter-dire...

Identification of haptoglobin as a potential diagnostic biomarker of acute pulmonary embolism.

: 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...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Point-of-Care Ultrasound Performed by Pulmonary Critical Care Physicians for Right Ventricle Assessment in Patients With Acute Pulmonary Embolism.

Risk stratification for acute pulmonary embolism using imaging presence of right ventricular dysfunction is essential for triage; however, comprehensive transthoracic echocardiography has limited avai...

Pulmonary embolism rule-out criteria (PERC) rule in European patients with low implicit clinical probability (PERCEPIC): a multicentre, prospective, observational study.

The ability of the pulmonary embolism rule-out criteria (PERC) to exclude pulmonary embolism without further testing remains debated outside the USA, especially in the population with suspected pulmon...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.

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.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

The blood pressure as recorded after wedging a CATHETER in a small PULMONARY ARTERY; believed to reflect the PRESSURE in the pulmonary CAPILLARIES.

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.
