This retrospective study from Vienna examined the correlation between length of extracted thrombi and outcomes after pulmonary endarterectomy in 110 pts.  The extent of thrombus extraction was inversely correlated with PVR.  PVR in the early postoperative period was the only predictor of survival and freedom from lung transplant.
