Leaving PICC lines in place for tx of Thrombus

I have a question for the group. What is the practice in your facility for patients that develope an occluding thrombus in an extremity with a PICC line. Do you leave it in place and tx. with heparin, or do you remove the line?? Also do you have any evidence based literature to support your practice?

Thank you, Robin
