Watch to learn how Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) could affect you.
What is a Venous Thromboembolic (VTE) Condition?
Thrombolex strives to raise awareness of VTE, a condition that is the 3rd leading cause of cardiovascular death worldwide.
It consists of two conditions: Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism.
Both involve large clots that block the flow of blood through veins in the circulatory system.
What does VTE look like?
VTE consists of two separate but inter-related conditions.
One is DVT and the other is PE.
Both involve clots blocking the flow of blood through the vascular system.
How do DVT and PE develop?
DVT can develop in the lower legs for a variety of reasons, including prolonged periods of immobility (such as on a long plane flight, bed rest after surgery), pregnancy or
diabetes. Symptoms can be swelling, pain, redness or cramping. More seriously, the clot can break off and work its way through the circulatory system to the lungs.
When this occurs it is called a pulmonary embolism and can lead to sudden death. Physicians suspect that many cases of sudden death that are thought to be the result of a heart attack are mis-diagnosed and in fact are the result of a pulmonary embolism.
Thrombolex is dedicated to the quick and efficient treatment of DVT and PE through the use of the BASHIR™ family of endovascular catheters.
Its use will provide effective therapy and will greatly reduce the mortality rate of these conditions.
