• veins
  • Nevertheless, they can progress to the deep veins through the perforator veins or, they can be responsible for a lung embolism mainly if the head of the clot is poorly attached to the vein wall and is situated near the sapheno-femoral junction. (wikipedia.org)
  • anticoagulation
  • 4 It would be interesting to understand why the authors chose to treat this fluttering thrombus by anticoagulation alone in a young patient (56 years old) with apparently no major previous medical or surgical history. (ahajournals.org)
  • prognostic
  • Impending paradoxical embolism: systematic review of prognostic factors and treatment. (ahajournals.org)
  • In this review, we describe how cardiovascular sources of embolism may be detected by TEE, and how TEE is important for stratifying risk and providing prognostic information to prevent, predict, or manage perioperative embolism. (asahq.org)
  • artery
  • An arterial embolism is caused by one or more emboli getting stuck in an artery and blocking blood flow, causing ischemia, possibly resulting in infarction with tissue death (necrosis). (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiovascular
  • 12 Of them, key TEE views for detecting cardiovascular sources of embolism can be obtained from the upper esophageal and mid-esophageal positions ( fig. 1 ). (asahq.org)
  • Essential views for detection of cardiovascular sources of embolism. (asahq.org)
  • intravenous
  • Air embolism can also happen during intravenous therapy, when air is leaked into the system (however this iatrogenic error in modern medicine is extremely rare). (wikipedia.org)
  • contrast
  • By contrast there are non-traveling blockages that develop locally from vascular trauma or epithelial pathology and vascular inflammation - such as atheromata and thrombi. (wikipedia.org)
  • presence
  • The prevalence of silent brain infarcts is closely related to the presence of a PFO suggesting a high incidence of unsuspected paradoxical emboli in those patients. (ahajournals.org)
  • findings
  • Given the findings of a mass with low attenuation that respects anatomic boundaries and contains foci of calcification, and proximity to a chronic indwelling intravascular catheter, this patient's mass was diagnosed as a chronic catheter-associated thrombus via the CT findings. (massgeneral.org)
