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)
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

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...
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...
Heparin is the reference therapy for most patients with pulmonary embolism. Some patients with sub-massive pulmonary embolism defined by normal blood pressure and dysfunction of the right ...
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...
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...

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.
