Abstract

This case demonstrated a feasible alternative to treat "clot in transit" associated with pulmonary embolism using FlowTriever Inari device. The pre-existing approved AngioVac device requires extracorporeal circulation support and more invasiveness. FlowTriever permits mechanical thrombectomy with versatile approach without additional extracorporeal perfusion setting. Additional studies are required to reach a definitive conclusion.
