Welcome to the tenth monthly email of PERTinent Updates featuring a select group of articles for your review. We aim to inform and update our members with the most recent major developments in the fields of PERT/VTE so that we in the PERT Consortium can continue to be at the leading edge of improving care for this vulnerable and overlooked group of patients.
This month’s “From Our Own” section features articles by Jay Giri, Wissam Jaber and Michael McDaniel in Interventional Cardiology Clinics; Akhilesh Sista in Blood; and Brett Carroll, Sam Goldhaber, and Greg Piazza in the Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis.
Additionally, the design and rationale of the Standard vs UltrasouND-assiSted CathEter Thrombolysis for Submassive Pulmonary Embolism (Sunset sPE) trial is featured in “Upcoming Studies”. Based out of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, this ongoing randomized control trial compares standard catheter-directed thrombolysis to ultrasound-assisted thrombolysis in patients with submassive pulmonary embolism.
