Vein Filter: Your doctor will make a small incision, then use a thin wire to install a small filter in your inferior vena cava. The vena cava is the main vein that leads from your legs to the right side of your heart. The filter prevents blood clots from traveling from your legs to your lungs.
Clot Removal: A thin tube called a catheter will suction large clots out of your artery. It isn’t an entirely effective method because of the difficulty involved, so it’s not always a preferred method of treatment.
Open Surgery: Doctors use open surgery only in emergency situations when a person is in shock or medications aren’t working to break up the clot.
Whatever treatement Tweet is getting, we pray that her recovery time and healing is speedy and thorough.
