Extract

Patients with high-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) presenting with cardiogenic shock refractory to supportive measures have a high mortality [1, 2]. Therapeutic success depends on rapid haemodynamic sabilisation and restoration of pulmonary blood flow. Thrombolytic therapy is the most widely used recanalization strategy, but this treatment has substantial drawbacks including a high rate of bleeding complications and limited efficacy in patients with large embolic burden or in patients with recurrent PE presenting with acute-on-chronic events [3–8].
