This may happen in the back of neck to the vertebral arteries, which pass upwards inside a canal in the vertebral body called foramen transversarum.

Does the drug vincristine cause blood clots in the bowel, grandad had rcvp them had a blood clot in the major artery supplying the bowel?
I suspect this was..: True...True and unrelated. Coagulopathy, is not a side effect of vincristine. However, having a cancer (such as lymphoma that i suspect your dad has) can elevate clotting risk all by itself. Prednisone in rcvp can elevate risk of clotting as well. Additionally, as a 67yo man, he could have had pre-existing vascular disease that elevated his risk for clotting in those vessels that supply the gut. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could someone be released from a medical facility with a cerebral blood clot and placed on blood thinners?
Yes: For blood clots anywhere, but particularly one in the brain, blood thinners prevent the formation additional clots, and facilitate the dissolution of the existing clots by your own healing mechanism.

Yes: If you have a blood clot in the deep veins of the leg, they can break loose and travel up through the heart, and into the lungs where it can cause a pulmonary embolism.
