Abstract: We present the case of a young comatose female patient in whom a massive pulmonary embolism was diagnosed by pulmonary angiography. During the angiography, not only successful thrombolytic therapy with recombinant human tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) (100 mg) was performed, but measuring of the pulmonary artery pressures, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels was also possible. Thrombolysis seems to be a good alternative to surgical thrombectomy.
