This podcast is developed by the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT).  PERT Consortium was developed after the initial efforts of a team of physicians at Massachusetts General Hospital. The first PERT sought to coordinate and expedite the treatment of pulmonary embolus with a balanced team of physicians from a variety of specialties.  Listen here for the latest in research and discussion on Pulmonary Embolism.

The PERT Consortium® kindly invites you to listen to the audio from our webinar entitled, “Endo Wars: Aspirate vs. Dissolve”.


Experts will debate the optimal management for two patients with intermediate-high risk pulmonary embolism. In these two debates, we will explore the evidence and practice patterns supporting the use of anticoagulation alone vs. catheter-directed therapies. We will also compare catheter-directed thrombolysis to catheter-directed thrombectomy as a means of managing patients with acute pulmonary embolism.

This webinar will be moderated by Geoff Barnes, MD, MSc.  Our speakers are Carin Gonsalves, MD, FSIR, Jay Giri, MD, MPH, Maya Serhal, MD, and Keith Sterling, MD, FSIR.
