To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the FlowTriever System for use in the removal of emboli from the pulmonary arteries in the treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). The use of the device will be assessed in a real-world population, with eligibility criteria that closely approximate its use in clinical practice.
