About the Surgery

A Blood clot or thrombosis forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can occur without any symptoms. Leg pain and swelling are commonly seen. Medical conditions and inactivity after going through physical injuries, confinement to the bed are few major causes of DVT.

Blood clots in your veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream and lodge in your lungs, blocking blood flow. This condition is called pulmonary embolism . PE is a very serious condition. It can damage the lungs and other organs in the body and cause death. This makes DVT a serious condition which needs medical attention.

Thrombectomy: A surgeon makes an incision into a blood vessel. The clot is removed, and the blood vessel is repaired. The Blood clot can usually be removed using a thin tube called a catheter, which is inserted through a vein in the groin or arm and threaded to the location of the blood clot. In a thrombectomy, your surgeon injects a contrast dye, which helps locate the clot using X-ray guidance.

 Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) might be related to DVT itself or pulmonary embolism (PE).

  • Only about half of the people who have DVT have signs and symptoms.
  • Some people aren't aware of a deep vein clot until they have signs and symptoms of PE
  • These signs and symptoms occur in the leg affected by the deep vein clot. They include:
  • Swelling of the leg, or along a vein in the leg
  • Pain or tenderness in the leg, which you may feel only when standing or walking
  • Increased warmth in the area of the leg that's swollen or painful
  • Red or discoloured skin on the leg

Pulmonary Embolism

Signs and symptoms of PE include:

  • Unexplained shortness of breath
  • Pain with deep breathing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Rapid breathing
  • Fast heart rate

    You may need some tests before the procedure, such as:

    • Ultrasound, to measure blood flow in the leg and help diagnose the blood clot
    • Venogram (for a vein clot) or arteriogram (for an artery clot), to get an image of your vessels
    • CT scan, to get more information about the blood clot
    • MRI, if more information is needed
    • Blood tests, to check your overall health
    • Hair in the area of your surgery may be removed
    • Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before your surgery.

      • To help prevent new blood clots forming during the surgery a blood thinner will be given to the patient.
      • A Fogarty catheter is passed through the clot, and the balloon is inflated and withdrawn, along with the clot.
      • A stent may be put in the blood vessel to help keep it open.
      • Your doctor will close and repair the blood vessel. This will then restore blood flow.
      • The incision on your skin will be closed and bandaged.

      • Medication for a short time to help prevent blood clots.
      • Follow up – appointments with Dr
      • Compression stockings to prevent the clot from forming again.
      • Quitting smoking will lower your risks of blood clots forming in the future.
      • A balanced diet and adequate physical activity is recommended.

        • Excess bleeding that can be severe 
        • Infection
        • Damage to the blood vessel at the site of the blood clot
        • Reaction to anaesthesia
        • Pulmonary embolism
        • Other chronic conditions of the blood vessel may be found which will need more surgery to repair

        FAQs and Related Articles

      • Unhealthy binge habits such as regular consumption of processed foods or chain smoking.
      • Sitting or standing in the same position for long periods of time.
      • Patient has a medical condition which causes the blood to clot easier than others.
      • Swelling, usually in one leg
      • Leg pain or tenderness
      • Reddish or bluish skin discoloration
      • Leg warm to touch
      • MOVEMENT: As mentioned before, one of the causes of DVT, is sitting in the same position for a very long time.
      • STAYING HYDRATED AND INTAKE OF MEDICATION (IF ANY): Fluids help a lot in preventing DVT. The lack of water in the body reduces the flow of blood and can lead to a clot formation. Individuals with medical conditions that frequently cause the blood to clot are prescribed blood thinners.
      • COMPRESSION STOCKINGS: They are worn on the legs and work by applying pressure on the legs to help the blood to move up, against gravity, in the veins. This prevents the blood from pooling.
      • The amount and type of exercise that is safe is a decision to make with your doctor, and depends on your physical condition. Walking or swimming are usually considered good choices as exercise.
        Since DVT is usually formed in the legs, sitting for too long causes the red blood cells to clump together and form a clot. An individual is advised to get up and walk or even stretch for a a few minutes every hour.
        A blood thinner is not a prevention technique and is rather a medical treatment. DVT is formed by the blood clotting in the leg. Blood thinners help with easier blood flow, by thinning out the blood and thus preventing DVT.
