Embolectomy Vs Thrombectomy
Blood clot removal: Emboli and thrombi are blood clots, an embolus is one that has traveled and lodged an a vessel and a thrombus is a blood clot that has formed in a vessel. Removal of the blood clot is performed, usually surgically, to restore blood flow. In the case of a thrombectomy, in addition to removing the clot, one needs to treat the cause of the vessel thrombosis...by removing blockage that caused thrombosis
Some Possibilities: Some possible causes are: unrecognized and thus untreated arterial blockage that results in: *poor arterial inflow into artery that is thrombosed *poor runoff from artery that is thrombosed. *poor flow through the bypass (if patient has a bypass) hyper-coagulable state allergy to the blood thinner heparin...This can cause a syndrome called hit that results in thrombosis.
Same as original.: For the same reason they formed prior to removal of the clot. A thrombectomy is just a removal of clot. If the underlying disorder that caused the clot is not treated, it is likely the clot will recur.
Easiest way: This is theclassic surgical method of removing fresh clot from a blood vessel. Why? To restore circulation and remove the obstruction caused by the blood clot.
Long answer: 'normal therapeutic values vs normal, are two different numbers. After an embolectomy and Heparin infusionyou usually aim for a aptt of 1.5-2 times normal, non-anticoagulated range. Around 55-80 seconds.
When clots or thrombi are removed with an embolectomy catheter, what's the recovery or follow-up like?
Depends: The recovery depends on the location of the clots and the extent of the operation needed to remove the cots.

Is there a standard procedure in place for treating a wound infection that develops after an embolectomy of the femoral artery?
What does "pulmonary embolectomy with cardiac arrest and ROSC", mean? They did use CPB during procedure
Complicated.: Here is the breakdown. There was a blood clot in the lungs that was removed surgically. During the procedure, the heart stopped. With CPR, the heart restarted and starting pumping normally (ROSC = return on spontaneous circulation). The use of CPB (cardiopulmonary bypass) is not indicated in a situation like this. Hope this helped.
An abscess develops after a femoral artery embolectomy. Incision and drainage is done. How long should it drain before debridement?
In 65 y/o female with asthma and previous cardiac arrest W/ROSC during Pulm. Embolectomy W/ CPB. Which is safest method for pericardial window?
Complicated question: You ask a VERY complicated question about a complex medical history. The 1st thing to ascertain: "why do you need a pericardial window? " Normally, they are for recurrent cardiac effusions; despite the dramatic surgery & event, effusions aren't typical after cardiac arrest. 2nd, need to know why pulm embolism developed.

Occlusion of abdominal aorta and other lower limb arteries treated by embolectomy, what are all the food item we have to take for life saving and limb?
Forks over knives: Complete vegan diets as described in a book/ video "forks over knives" shows the best dietary practices to reverse blockages in general. Study performed by dr caldwell esseylstein shows documented improvement in heart blockages with this diet. Medications such as crestor, (rosuvastatin) stopping smoking, exercise will also be important.
