This is a screenshot of the case that Dr. @Nader Guma posted earlier, please review the case and the share with the group the best approach in the management of this case.

Here is the link to the case:

I would advise for (check all what apply):

  • 0%Catheter-directed embolectomy

  • 0%Catheter-directed thrombolysis

  • 0%Systemic anticoagulation

  • 0%Surgical embolectomy

You can vote for more than one answer.


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.
