This research is devoted to analyzing of the case of pulmonary embolism in a young woman with deep vein thrombosis taking oral contraceptives and successfully treated by surgical methods. Pulmonary angiography performed in patient L. allowed to confirm the diagnosis ofpulmonary embolism and reveal the localization of the thrombus. The treatment included selective thrombolysis by actilyse through catheter in the pulmonary artery. The treatment was not only non-invasive but included surgical intervention. Using of invasive methods, thrombolysis and anticoagulant medication allowed to stabilize the condition of the patient and prevent development of right ventricular failure.
