Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and acute massive pulmonary embolism can be characterized by no pulse electrical activity. Patients of cardiac arrest (CA) with no pulse electrical activity have a high mortality rate before the cause was corrected. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as a kind of artificial heart-lung support organ, provides treatment for CA patients. A case of massive pulmonary embolism similar to AMI was treated in the Third Central Hospital of Tianjin, who received interventional thrombolysis assisted by ECMO...

Value-based care emphasizes achieving the greatest overall health benefit for every dollar spent. We present an interesting case of stroke, which made us consider how frequently health care providers are utilizing value-based care. A 73-year-old Caucasian, who was initially admitted for a hypertensive emergency, was transferred to our facility for worsening slurring of speech and left-sided weakness. The patient had an extensive chronic cerebrovascular disease, including multiple embolic type strokes, mainly in the distribution of the right temporal-occipital cerebral artery and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)...

Pulmonary embolism continues as a very common and also presumably life-threatening disorder. For affected individuals with intermediate- as well as high-risk pulmonary embolism, catheter-based revascularization procedures have developed a possible substitute for systemic thrombolysis or for surgical embolectomy. Ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis is an innovative catheter-based approach; which is the main purpose of the present review article. Ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis is much more efficacious in reversing right ventricular dysfunction as well as dilatation in comparison to anticoagulation alone in individuals at intermediate risk...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism (PE) results in more than 250,000 hospitalizations annually in the United States, with high mortality. Outcome data are limited, and reperfusion strategies remain controversial. Here we evaluated the outcomes of thrombolysis and surgical embolectomy in patients with acute PE using a statewide database. METHODS: Among 174,322 patients hospitalized with PE in New York State between 1999 and 2013, we performed a retrospective comparison of 2111 adults with acute PE who underwent either thrombolysis (n = 1854; 88%) or surgical embolectomy (n = 257; 12%) as first-line therapy...

The Indigo Mechanical Thrombectomy System (Penumbra, Inc, Alameda, California) was used to treat 6 patients with submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) and a contraindication to thrombolysis. Systolic pulmonary artery pressure (58.2 mm Hg vs 43.0 mm Hg, P < .05), right ventricular/left ventricular ratio (1.7 vs 1.1, P < .05), Miller index (15.0 vs 9.8, P < 0.01), and CT obstructive index (60.4% vs 47.0%, P < .01) were significantly reduced after mechanical thrombectomy. There were no procedural or periprocedural complications...

Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams (PERTs) have emerged to provide rapid multidisciplinary assessment and treatment of PE patients. However, descriptive institutional experience and preliminary outcomes data from such teams are sparse. PERT activations were identified through a retrospective review. Only confirmed submassive or massive PEs were included in the data analysis. In addition to baseline variables, the therapeutic intervention, length of stay (LOS), in-hospital mortality, and bleeding rate/severity were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Ultrasonographic evaluation of patients in cardiac arrest is currently not protocolised in the advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) algorithm. Potentially reversible causes may be identified using bedside ultrasonography that is ubiquitous in most emergency departments (EDs). This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of sonographically detectable reversible causes of cardiac arrest by incorporating an ultrasonography protocol into the ACLS algorithm. Secondary objectives include rates of survival to hospital admission, hospital discharge, and 30-day mortality...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound-assisted, catheter-directed thrombolysis (UA-CDT) relieves right ventricular stress without a significant increase in the risk of bleeding compared to systemic thrombolysis. Although concomitant anticoagulation is provided to prevent thrombus expansion, the optimal anticoagulation regimen in patients receiving UA-CDT remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe anticoagulation practices for patients receiving UA-CDT. METHODS: Patients receiving UA-CDT for acute pulmonary embolism (PE) between Jan 1, 2013 to Sept 30, 2014 at a single center were analyzed...

Pregnant women are at high risk for venous thromboembolism, including pulmonary embolism (PE), given expected changes in coagulation, fibrinolysis, and venous blood flow. In fact, PE is the leading cause of maternal death in the United States. Non-pregnant patients who develop PE with hypotension or showing signs of deterioration after anticoagulation receive thrombolytics as a standard of care. Pregnant women, however, have been excluded from clinical trials with thrombolytics and all data available in this population is published as case reports or case series...

RATIONALE: Choriocarcinoma accompanied with pulmonary embolism (PE) is rare and difficult to diagnose and treat. There are about 25 cases reported in literature, which presented variable clinical characteristics and prognosis. PATIENT CONCERNS: We reported a case of choriocarcinoma presenting PE as the first manifestation in a 26-year-old Chinese female. DIAGNOSES: Four months before her admission to our hospital, she presented to a local hospital with respiratory manifestations, and was first diagnosed as bronchitis and treated with antibiotics without improvement, and subsequently suspected of having pulmonary tuberculosis and receive anti-tuberculosis therapy, with no response...

To assess the safety of thrombolytic therapy in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients who present with pulmonary embolism (PE). We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample Database to identify patients who underwent thrombolysis for PE between 2010 and 2014. The patients were divided into two groups: (1) No CKD and (2) CKD. Patients with and without CKD were matched using 1:1 propensity score matching and a caliper width of 0.01. The primary outcomes were in-hospital mortality and hemorrhagic events. The secondary outcomes were blood transfusions, length of stay and total hospitalization charge...
