Purpose: To report an ex vivo study on the local effects of hydrodynamic thrombectomy for the treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (off-label use). Methods: Three devices (6-F AngioJet Xpeedior and 6-F and 8-F Oasis) were used for hydrodynamic thrombectomy inside the arteries of 24 inflated and perfused porcine lung explants. Each system was used at multiple positions inside 4 intact and 4 embolized lungs in vessels measuring 2 to 4 mm, 4 to 6 mm, 6 to 8 mm, and 8 to 10 mm. Angiograms prior to… Expand
