  1. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation. HMD = hydro-mechanical defragmentation; ST = systemic thrombolysis; PE = pulmonary embolism; SBP = systolic blood pressure; DBP = diastolic blood pressure; PASP = pulmonary artery systolic pressure
  2. *Statistically significant difference (p < 0.05); **Highly statistically significant difference (p < 0.01). aThe change is measured by subtracting the previous value to calculate the rate of change in each efficacy parameter
