Was diagnosed with having arterial blood clot in radial artery. Was on clexane injection did not work. On Bayer aspirin. Does this affect ffuture preg?

Aspirin is safe. You should have a thrombophilia work-up before you get pregnant - however the Aspirin prophylaxis does not affect pregnancy risk per se. If you are a thrombophilia carrier or patient, then that will be the major determinant of your pregnancy risk profile. Genetic counseling is also advisable!

Have chronic thrombosis of radial artery. Take Bayer aspirin. Will this dissolve the clot. Last ultrasound a year ago. Do I need to do another one?

No, and no. Chronic thrombosis implies totally blocked radial artery which will not open up with aspirin. U/s one year ago will not change significantly. If you are not having any pain in your hand, there is not need to pursue this. On the other hand, should you have pain in your hand, especially when using it, then see vascular surgeon, who can help you. Read more...

I have an arterial clot in my radial artery in my right hand. I am on Bayer aspirin. How does this affect future pregnancy?

Might affect it. Answer depends upon why you have clot. This is an unusual clot and may represent a significant clotting abnormality which may affect future pregnancy. However, i suspect you already know why you have the clot and that you do not have a significant clotting disorder (otherwise you would have mentioned it?). If clot is related to vessel injury it would not likely affect future pregnancy. Read more...

For past year have had chronic thrombosis of radial artery. It is occluded. Having pain in hand. Taking Bayer aspirin. What r symptoms of ischemic?

Pain and pale color. Have you seen a vascular surgeon? Were you taking birth control pills? Has the cause of the thrombosis been determined? Have blood clotting conditions been checked out? Read more...
Pain for how long? As dr. Bress said, the signs and symptoms of ischemia are pain and pale color (pallor). The affected area might also be cooler too. You can do without radial artery flow as long as your blood flow everywhere else is good. If the other arteries become occluded, then you have to worry. If you pain is new, you need to seek medical attention now. If the pain is old, attention is less urgent. Read more...

Chronic thrombosis of radial artery. Vascular surgeon says bypass could kill me. Do I have any other options. Only on Bayer aspirin.

Unclear. The radial artery in its natural position is well collateralized and minimal symptoms. Rarely would it need to be bypassed. If was used as coronary graft and occluded, then reoperation can have risks in relation to the total health picture-. Read more...
Second opinion. It's unlikely that a radial artery bypass would kill you, as most perioperative mortality in vascular surgery is a result of cardiac events and this can be minimized in this setting with regional anesthesia. I would get a second opinion from a board certified vascular surgeon. Check with the society for vascular surgery at www.Vascularweb.Org. Read more...

Why is it that aspirin can prevent blood clots in arteries but not in veins? If it inhibits platelet function, why does it not do that everywhere?

It does. It does inhibit platelet function. It does inhibit clot formation in veins. Its just that venous clots aren't quite as serious an issue. We worry about clots in the arteries to your heart that can lead to heart attack or an artery to your extremity leading to cold leg or arm. People do get clots in their veins, they are called DVTs but they usually aren't fatal. Read more...

My sister is 15 weeks pregnant mom died from aneurysm she had blood clot in previous pregnancy is clexaine or aspirin best option doctors are unsure?

Judgement call. Clexaine (enoxaparin) is far more potent than aspirin but with potency comes the risk of adverse bleeding. Has your sister been tested for thrombophilic (clotting) disorders? The decision to use/not use this med is a judgement call - no textbook will provide the answer, & depends on your sister's specifics. You need to trust her doctors or switch. Read more...

Can women with no known blood issues take a aspirin a day during and after pregnancy to prevent blood clots? I'm afraid of getting pregnant and clots

Not recommended. Aspirin is prescribed for some very specific issues in pregnancy; however, its not recommended for general use. In the first trimester, aspirin use is concerning for increased pregnancy loss and even congenital defects. In the third trimester it can cause premature closure of an important vessel in the babies heart. You shouldn't use it unless you are prescribed it by a doctor. Best wishes! Read more...
