Thrombosis can be a term for a range of different conditions in which blood clots form in one area of the body, then move into other parts. As thrombosis progresses, the clots break or “bleed” into smaller pieces that can then lodge elsewhere. Some people have a history of thrombosis in the family, but many people have no family history of thrombosis.
This is a term that can refer to a whole range of things, but in this case it refers to a disease caused by a problem with the blood clotting system. Our blood clotting system is our body’s defense system against blood clots that can form in the blood vessels of the heart.
As the blood clots get bigger and bigger, the heart can no longer pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. The heart can no longer pump blood at all, and that can cause a condition called a heart attack. It’s when the blood doesn’t get enough oxygen and begins to get more and more agitated that the heart can actually die.
Heart attacks are a terrible thing to have. It could be that many of you reading this know this already and have been told not to drink or consume alcohol. Or maybe you’ve had worse and still have the strength to walk up the stairs and be fine, but you know you should never drink and/or drive.
I know its sad, but it is still a fact that the heart can die, and that people need to know its not always a tragedy. The same goes for blood clots, which are a very common cause of heart attacks. If you’ve had a heart attack and need to have it cleaned out, there are procedures that can help you get the clot removed, as well as medications that can stop the clot from forming.
I’ve heard a couple of people say that they’ve had this happen to them. The first time I heard that was when my wife had to have her bicep artery cleaned out. We were driving back from a visit to the hospital, and I was telling her that I had to have it cleaned out, because I had to go to the hospital. She looked at me and said, “You go to the hospital, and I’ll get the car.
This happens to some people who have had a clot, but it rarely happens to people who have had a stroke. Strokes are much more devastating than a simple clot, and it can be a very difficult, expensive procedure.
Strokes are very common. About 10 percent of the population will have a stroke in their lifetime. In the U.S. alone, stroke is responsible for more than 13 million deaths per year. The odds of having a stroke in the next year are about 1 in about a million, which equates to about 2 million deaths a year. To put that in perspective, that’s about the chances of dying at a traffic accident.
Strokes are caused by blood clots that build up and block your arteries. Once this happens, it can take days, weeks, or months to clear. They can also be fatal. A stroke can cause paralysis, nerve damage, or even death. The good news is that most strokes are not fatal.
Although deaths per year are very bad, they are not the only thing that matters. What matters are the other things that can kill you. In addition to the odds of having a stroke in the next year, you also need to have the number of strokes that you get in the next year. That is, the greater the number of strokes you have, the lower the chances of dying from them. Strokes are caused by blood clots that build up and block your arteries.
