Thrombolytic therapy leads to early normalization of both hemodynamic parameters and RV function, thus reducing mortality.
The aim of the present study was to compare the efficacies of thrombolytic and standard anticoagulation therapy modalities on mortality and also to determine the safety of thrombolytic therapy in subjects with submassive PE.

Ischemic stroke is a predominant stroke type caused by cerebral blood supply interruption, rapidly resulting in energy depletion and cell death.[1] Thrombolysis is a therapeutic approach to restore the blood supply in ischemic area based on the concept of penumbra, which is currently the most promising treatment for acute ischemic stroke (AIS).[2] Clinical trials have demonstrated that intravenous (IV) and intra-arterial thrombolytic therapies improve outcome when administered to select patients with AIS.[3],[4] What concern clinicians the most are complications after thrombolysis and whether revascularization can be achieved.
