EKOS Catheter Directed Thrombolysis is the first FDA approved device for pulmonary artery thrombolysis for treatment of Pulmonary Embolism. Interventional radiologists use this procedure for treatment of peripheral arterial or venous thrombolysis and treatment of Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT). A wire within the catheter generates ultrasound waves which accelerates clot breakdown and lysis.
