Arterial thrombosis is nothing but a blood clot that develops in the arteries of the heart. It is highly dangerous as it obstructs the blood flow to major organs. Depending upon the area of the clot formation, arterial thrombosis will lead several serious conditions which include stroke, heart attack or peripheral heart disease.
If you are under the condition of arterial ischemia, then you may feel pain due to a stroke caused by the blood clot in the artery. In this case, the cardiologist suggests you a procedure for removing the clot called thrombectomy.
In arterial thrombolysis treatment procedure, the cardiologist threads a catheter through the artery in the groin up to the brain. Once the catheter is inserted the cardiologist uses a tiny mechanical device for removing the clot which can be a tiny suction cup or fluid jet. In this process, the cardiologist uses imaging scans to see the status of clot whether it is dissolved or not. To get effective results, this treatment should be started within few hours using thrombolytic agents. In general, tissue plasminogen activators are directly injected into the area around the clot which dissolves the clot and prevent further damage.
Arterial thrombosis is dangerous and may lead to other severe conditions. If you are once affected by the thrombolysis, then you should take care to avoid further strokes and other diseases by taking some prevention measures like losing weight, avoiding drinking and smoking, maintain blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol level, etc.
