What are Blood Clots?

Blood clots in the legs are a serious medical condition caused by a variety of underlying factors, including deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, or other veinrelated disorders. These clots can be lifethreatening if left untreated. Treatment for blood clots in the legs typically involves the use of anticoagulants (blood thinners), compression stockings, and lifestyle modifications. Thrombectomy is a safe and effective way to treat blood clots. Treatment for blood clots often starts with a comprehensive assessment by a vein specialist at a VeNA clinic.

Treatment options
Thrombectomy

  Thrombectomy is a minimally invasive procedure to remove a blood clot from a vein or artery. During the procedure, the doctor will make a small incision in the leg and insert a catheter into the vein. The clot is then grasped and removed using a specially designed device. Depending on the size and location of the clot, additional treatments may be necessary. Once the clot is removed, the doctor may recommend follow-up treatments to help reduce the risk of recurrence.

 

 

  Thrombectomy is a safe and effective way to treat blood clots. It can help decrease the risk of serious complications, such as stroke or heart attack. Recovery from the procedure typically takes several weeks, and the patient will need to take anticoagulants (blood thinners) for a period of time to prevent further clots from forming.
