Treatment of right heart thromboemboli: the need of a randomized multicentre trial.

Abstract

Currently, there are not solid evidence-based recommendations on the treatment of in-transit right heart thromboemboli. We present a case of acute pulmonary embolism with right ventricular entrapped thrombus detected by echocardiography. Surgical thrombectomy was successfully carried out. Treatment options are discussed and the need of a randomized trial is stressed.
