How to treat deep vein thrombosis of the lower leg?


Urgent! My friend has a swollen leg after a flight. Doctors discovered that she has a thrombosis and there is a real danger of this clot causing trouble. She undergoes a heparin injections treatment.
Is this the best solution? How to heal this throbmosis?! Thanks!
----------

The heparin is the treatment, it keeps the clot from progressing while the body breaks it down.

Eventually she should be switched over to warfarin, which a pill that acts similarly. This therapy would usually last about 3 months

DVT's are common, and are mainly dangerous when they're not recognized early, it seems like your friend got treatment in time  (+ info)

What is the best way to combat deep vein thrombosis?


What is the best way to help prevent me from getting deep vein thrombosis or blood clots in the legs when I get older?
----------

I do not know what age you are. Likewise you state when I get older as in any specific age? Perhaps 60, so how many years are we taking about? Likewise do you have any health problems like high Cholesterol? Do you smoke? Are you over weight? The other person stated taking aspirin, but if you are allergic to it, say no more. If you take it over a prolonged 30 years, say no more. If you take aspirin you are risking other side affects like dying from a serious hemorrhage, so without more information, I cannot answer this question. Good Luck  (+ info)

How long does it take a hemroidal thrombosis to heal after removal?


I am 36 weeks pregnant and was wondering if anyone had a protruding hemroidal thrombosis removed. I feel like there is still a bump and was wondering how long this takes to heal. Also wondering if anyone experienced alot of pain the day after procedure? I am worried about going into labor and being scared to push because of this.
----------

If it doesn't hurt anymore you do not have to surgically remove it. The spontaneous healing takes about 1 week. If you go to surgery, it will heal in 5 to 6 days. The standard procedure will remove only one of the several external hemorrhoids. The problem with hemorrhoids might persist during pregnancy and after. The definitive treatment should be a few months after birth. Please send me email and tell me how did you manage this problem.  (+ info)

What is coronary artery disease or hypertension?


Why do people get hypertension and what is it.Also what is coronary artery disease ?
----------

Artery is a plaque build-up in the arteries, causing the arteries to be less flexible and smaller inside than they would normally be. The arteries that bring blood back and forth to the heart have smaller openings in them than they normally would. When that happens, there is more pressure from the blood flowing through the arteries, so you can get high blood pressure from this. You can also get high blood pressure if your arteries are constricted from any other reason. Think of how water would flow through a hose. If you had a large hose with a large diameter, the water would flow gradually from the hose. If you put the same amount of water through a hose that is a lot smaller in diameter, the water would be under more pressure (you would see it spurting out faster and harder). Arteries that are larger in diameter make for lower blood pressure than arteries that have a smaller opening. If the doctor says it is O.K. try taking a multi-vitamin with high B vitamins in it, and then also eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables along with something in your diet that gives you some calcium. Ask your doctor what he thinks about it.  (+ info)

What is the difference between CORONARY and CONGENITAL heart disease?


I'm filling out a family health history form for my doctor and it's asking if anyone in my family has had coronary or congenital heart disease. I know my mom has heart disease but I don't know which kind it is. One of the arteries to her heart was becoming blocked and they had to put a stent in that artery to open it back up - it's called angioplasty. Is that coronary or congenital? Thanks.
----------

Congenital means "from birth." Congenital heart disease is something you are born with, such as a murmur. If her artery is becoming slowly blocked, she does not have congenital disease. Coronary is the build up of plaques inside the artery walls. See attached link :)  (+ info)

What percentage of Coronary artery disease patients are female?


I'm just wondering what the male to female ratio is among patients with Coronary artery disease is. If you could tell me where you got the information from I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.
----------

After attaining the stage of menopause the percentage of CAD cases in males and females is almost equal. Before the menopause the incidence of the coronary artery disease (CAD) in females is very low due to the estrogen and other feminizing hormonal effect.  (+ info)
