Deadly Blood Clots
The Dangers of Venous ThromboembolismStreaming Video - 2011
When part of a deep vein thrombosis breaks up and lodges in the lungs, it becomes a pulmonary embolism-manifestations of the dual-stage condition known as venous thromboembolism. In this program, Richard Friedman, of Charleston Orthopaedic Associates, South Carolina; Stephan Moll, of the University of North Carolina; Jack Ansell, of Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan; and Alan Brownstein, of the National Alliance for Thrombosis and Thrombophilia, examine the symptoms and risk factors of DVT and PE, identify who should be tested for clotting disorders, and touch upon treatments ranging from anticoagulants and thrombolytic agents, to an abdominal filter, to surgery.
