One of the major goals of treatment is to prevent the blood clot in the renal vein from detaching and moving into the lungs (pulmonary embolism), where it can cause serious complications.
A burst blood vessel in the brain followed by uncontrolled bleeding (intracerebral hemorrhage) can cause a fetal stroke, or a clot (embolism) can obstruct a cerebral blood vessel.
Although rare in healthy infants born at or near term, intracerebral hemorrhage and brain embolism, like fetal stroke, are sometimes genetic.
When blood supply to a tissue or organ is blocked by an embolism, infarction, or death of the tissue the artery feeds, occurs.
Blood clots in the renal arteries are uncommon, but when they do occur, there is a risk of pulmonary embolism, a dangerous condition that occurs when the clot or a portion of the clot dislodges and travels to the lungs.
It is, but your partner should never blow air into the vagina during this sexual activity, as it is possible to develop an air embolism as a result, which is a life-threatening condition for mother and baby.
To the discovery of the parts played in disease by thrombosis and embolism we have referred above.
Should the portion of tissue deprived of its circulation be contained in an internal organ, as is so often the case where the obstruction in the artery is due to embolism, it becomes converted into what is known as an " infarction."
This lipoemic condition may cause embolism, the plugging especially occurring in the lung capillaries.
Less importance in this respect, and in other disorders many of them of grave incidence, is the knowledge of the phenomena of embolism and of thrombosis, also gained during the latter half of the 19th century - W.
