Nowadays patients affected by deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are studied widely but the challenge for physicians is when and how they are to be treated.

An increasing cohort of patients cannot be treated with systemic fibrinolysis but fortunately today, physicians can utilize a number of different instruments to resolve acute DVT and PE.
