Thrombosis - Thrombectomy information and locations in Mexico

Thrombosis is the formation of one or more blood clots inside the vessels. It is possible to dissolve the clot with medicine, physically remove the clot with catheter-based procedures, or a combination of the two.
Thrombosis is a serious condition and can result in life-threatening conditions, such as stroke or a heart attack. Thrombectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a blood clot, also known as a thrombus, from a blood vessel. A catheter is introduced into the afflicted blood artery during the surgery, and a specialized instrument is used to break up or remove the clot. This restores blood flow and can help avoid additional damage to the afflicted organ or tissue.

Arterial thrombosis is when a blood clot forms in an artery, and is the most common cause of hearth attacks and strokes.
