A percutaneous thrombectomy is the insertion of a catheter (long, thin, hollow tube) to the site of the embolism, using X-ray guidance. Once the catheter is in place, the catheter is used to break up the embolism or extract it (suck or pull it out). Often performed in conjunction with thrombolytic therapy.
Percutaneous thrombectomy is a treatment to remove blood clots, improving blood flow throughout the body.
