Abstract

Catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) is a growing field of intervention to treat pulmonary embolism (PE) and restore physiologic circulation. Reperfusion injury (RI) is a well-documented phenomenon seen post-thrombolysis. To date there are no reported cases of this phenomena following CDT. We present a patient with bilateral PE treated with CDT who subsequently developed RI.
