PMID:  9866788     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Mechanical thrombectomy of a large central thrombus in massive pulmonary embolism is a new option for the treatment of this serious condition. The special mechanical devices designed to fragmentize a blood clot include the Arrow-Trerotola percutaneous thrombolytic device (PTD), the use of which in the pulmonary arteries has not yet been reported. The case of massive embolism into the left pulmonary artery with subsequent collapse is to demonstrate the immediately clinically successful treatment using the PTD. Our initial experience with the PTD shows that its use is a safe and quick procedure.
