Watch to learn how Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) could affect you.
What are Arterial and Venous
Thromboembolic (A+VTE) Conditions?
All A+VTE's involve clots that block the flow of blood throughout the circulatory system.
It consists of multiple blood clot conditions: Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism, and arterial blood clots.
Thrombolex strives to raise awareness of these specific conditions that are the 3rd leading cause of cardiovascular death.
What does A+VTE look like?
A+VTE consists of multiple inter-related conditions.
Blood clots block the flow through arteries and veins.
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 rapid and efficient treatment of arterial and venous thromboembolic conditions through the use of the BASHIR™ family of Endovascular Catheters.
