The Data Behind the Smart Choice
A Reputation Built on Data
No pulmonary embolism interventional therapy has been studied as much as EKOS. The conclusion? EKOS is the only interventional device to treat PE that provides efficacy and safety data with long-term outcomes. The evidence is in the data—and in the 75,000+ patients who have benefitted from the procedure.
A Decade Committed to Clinical Advancement

The Future of EKOS Clinical Evidence
With the goal of gaining a deeper understanding of intervention for treating PE, Boston Scientific continues to invest in clinical studies.
KNOCOUT has been designed to better understand the adoption of OPTALYSE protocols and provide additional safety, efficacy, and long-term data to the EKOS data set. Learn More ›
HI-PEITHO represents the first-ever large-scale transatlantic, multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled trial for an interventional device in PE. It has been designed to address critical gaps in clinical evidence by comparing the clinical benefit of intervention with EKOS vs anticoagulation alone.
