Dr. Elder Invited to Pulmonary Embolism Response Team Symposium


When Massachusetts General Hospital hosted its Pulmonary Embolism Symposium last month in Boston, DMC's Mahir Elder, M.D. was invited to help educate physicians from around the country about some of the latest advances and techniques in PE treatment. Dr. Elder is internationally renowned and an interventional cardiologist at DMC's Heart Hospital.

The symposium is an event of the National Consortium of Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams, (PERT) founded two years ago "to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information related to the care of patients with PE, and to advance the science of PE care by performing research, developing advanced treatment protocols, and educating clinicians and community members." The PERT Consortium's goal is to be "the driving force behind increased survival rates and the future of PE treatment."

Dr. Elder talked about the DMC 's Clotbuster program, an innovative procedure used to treat pulmonary embolism with the support of the RV pump advanced technology. He also shared how these physicians from across the country could start similar Clotbuster programs at their hospitals.
