Brief Summary:
This registry is designed to understand acoustic pulse thrombolysis (APT) treatment regimens used as standard of care globally for pulmonary embolism. The registry will include individuals who have already received the APT treatment and those that will undergo APT treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Pulmonary Embolism and Thrombosis Device: EkoSonic Endovascular System with thrombolytic

Detailed Description:

For the prospective arm of the registry, a physician will have selected the APT procedure for the treatment of pulmonary embolism. The APT treatment and follow-up assessments are per clinical judgement and institutional standard of care which may vary at each clinical site.

For the retrospective arm of the registry, the investigators will gather data from consecutive cases of individuals who received the APT treatment for pulmonary embolism. Specific baseline, treatment, and long-term health information is collected and de-identified.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Retrospective
Individuals with intermediate-high or high risk pulmonary embolism who were consecutively treated with the Ekosonic Endovascular System (EKOS) and thrombolytic drug between January 2014 and one year prior to site activation.
Device: EkoSonic Endovascular System with thrombolytic
The device uses ultrasonic waves in combination with clot-dissolving thrombolytic drug to effectively dissolve clots.
Other Names:
  • Acoustic Pulse Thrombolysis
  • EKOS

Prospective
Individuals who are experiencing intermediate-high or high risk pulmonary embolism where the treating investigator has selected the EKOS device and thrombolytic drug. The duration of ultrasound and volume of thrombolytic drug are selected per physician discretion.
Device: EkoSonic Endovascular System with thrombolytic
The device uses ultrasonic waves in combination with clot-dissolving thrombolytic drug to effectively dissolve clots.
Other Names:
  • Acoustic Pulse Thrombolysis
  • EKOS




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in the ratio of the measurement of the right ventricular to left ventricular diameters (RV/LV) as measured by echocardiogram or CTA (matched pairs as available) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 24 to 48 hours after the start of the APT procedure ]
    Change in RV/LV ratio at 24 to 48 hours.

  2. Persistence of pulmonary hypertension defined as mean pulmonary artery pressure greater than 25mm Hg by echocardiogram [ Time Frame: 3 months post PE diagnosis ]
    Measured by frequency and severity

  3. Other urgent interventions for index PE following APT procedure [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment through hospital discharge, assessed up to 30 days ]
    Measured by number of interventions

  4. Number of participants with non or partial response to other interventional procedures with APT procedure as adjunctive treatment during hospitalization for index PE [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment up to or until the placement of the Ekos device, which is enrollment. ]
    Measured by number of participants

  5. Serious adverse experiences (SAE) related to the device and procedure, major bleeding, and venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) events during index hospitalization [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment through hospital discharge, assessed up to 30 days ]
    Measured by frequency and severity

  6. Recurrent symptomatic VTE and bleeding events [ Time Frame: After the index hospital discharge and during first 12 months ]
    Measured by frequency and duration of hospital stay

  7. All-cause mortality: PE, stroke, cardiac, malignancy, other [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months after index procedure. ]
    Summary of all-cause mortality

  8. Healthcare utilization during hospitalization [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment through 12 month post index procedure. ]
    Summary of healthcare utilization from date of enrollment through 12 month post index procedure

  9. Change in quality of life (QOL) as measured by the Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life (PEmb-QOL) at post-treatment before discharge and all post-hospitalization follow-up visits [ Time Frame: At baseline and at 3 and 12 months post index procedure. ]
    Summary by timepoint and/or study visits including change from baseline through continuous post procedure endpoints.

  10. Change in quality of life (QOL) as measured by the EuroQol five dimension five level questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) at post-treatment before discharge and all post-hospitalization follow-up visits [ Time Frame: At baseline and at 3 and 12 months post index procedure. ]
    Summary by timepoint and/or study visits including change from baseline through continuous post procedure endpoints.

  11. IVC filter placement [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment through 12 months ]
    Measured by number of occurrences
