• 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)
  • 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)
  • patent
  • We read with great interest the article by Bonanni et al 1 containing images of a patient with a fluttering thrombus in a patent foramen ovale. (ahajournals.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)
