I would advise for (check all what apply):

  • 0%Systemic anticoagulation

  • 0%Surgical embolectomy

The best choice for this patient with tumor embolism is to do surgical embolectomy to avoid fragmentation of the embolus causing pulmonary tumor emoboli if catheter-directed embolectomy is chosen. In addition, all patients should placed on anticoagulantion as these tumor embolism are thrombogenic and likely to be associated with thrombosis.
