Vein occlusion : A retinal vein occlusion may be total (crvo), 1/2 the retina (hemi-retinal), branched (brvo), or tertiary (smaller, branch retinal vein occlusion). So it's the size of vein that's occluded that depicts the name. Most often these occur from hypertension.

3 Options: 1) mechanically remove the clot in an interventional procedure 2) dissolve the clot using "lytic" medications 3) do nothing and just try to keep more clots from forming with Heparin or a heparin-like compound. Those are usually the 3 options. Specific choice depends on dozens of individual factors.
