Blood clot removal in heart
Depending on the size and location of the clot(s), you may need emergency treatment or routine treatment. Emergency Treatment - Blood clots can damage the body, leading to serious problems, such as stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
If a blood clot completely blocks the flow of blood, then all the heart muscle beyond the clot are starved of oxygen and a heart attack can occur. Stents are used to help the previously blocked arteries remain open after an angioplasty. This allows blood to continue to flow throughout the coronary arteries.
