Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pulmonary embolism(PE) is the third leading cause of cardiovascular death and a major contributor to long-term morbidity. With the evolution of catheter-based therapies, we have seen significant evolution in pulmonary embolism care over the recent years. Several recent published registries offer insight into these advances while randomized controled trials underway will inform our future practice.

In this special issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine, “Pulmonary Embolism: Clinical Advances and Future Opportunities” we aim to highlight recent developments in the field of advanced pulmonary embolism care and future directions in the field. We hope to review developments with respect to interventional therapies, risk assessment, Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams, and pharmacologic and mechanical circulatory support for the failing right ventricle. We cordially invite cotributions from worldwide experts in the field of pulmonary embolism care exploring the aforementioned issues in this special issue.

Dr. James Horowitz
Guest Editor
