Thrombectomy

When life threatening blood clots form in the arteries of your heart (known as a myocardial infarction or “heart attack”), a catheter-directed thrombectomy may be required. A thrombectomy is simply the removal of a thrombus, or clot, from a blood vessel, performed to restore circulation.

Some of the possible benefits of having a catheter-directed thrombectomy include:

•  Rapid restoration of blood flow
•  Removal of thrombus from the body
•  Quick resolution of symptoms
•  Potential for eliminating or reducing amount and duration of medications
