Abstract

A 51-year-old female underwent a laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy for fibroid uterus. After an uneventful procedure, the patient developed symptoms of Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PTE). The PTE was managed with, systemic thrombolysis using tissue plasminogen activator (Tenecteplase), appropriate support of inotropes and anticoagulants. While there is less incidence of PTE in laparoscopic procedures, in particular, in gynecology, there is a definite risk even in a patient with low-risk factors, which has been highlighted. Prompt diagnosis, aggressive therapy and adequate haemodynamic support go a long way to reduce mortality and morbidity from this life-threatening complication.
