It's well established that AF is associated with increased risk of dementia, presumably because the arrhythmia kicks out microemboli
that get distributed throughout the brain.
While most fat emboli are trapped in pulmonary capillaries, microemboli
can escape into the systemic circulation.
sup] Nevertheless, lycopodium spores or microspheres did not resemble microemboli
found in the hearts of patients who died of sudden death or acute coronary syndrome at autopsy.
4] We suspected that the probable cause of the patient's ongoing sepsis was septic microemboli
to the lungs, although the heart sonar ruled out a large pulmonary embolus.
The incidence of microemboli
to the brain is less with endarterectomy than with percutaneous revascularization with distal filters or flow reversal.
Activated platelets induce localised coagulation, to trap microorganisms in microemboli
, to prevent them from spreading via the blood.
Clinical significance and molecular characteristics of circulating tumor cells and circulating tumor microemboli
in patients with small-cell lung cancer.
during coronary artery bypass grafting.
Circulating tumor microemboli
(CTM) have been reported to be associated with prognosis of small cell lung cancer (12, 13).
BMSCs may stick together and cause microemboli
, including lethal pulmonary emboli and microstrokes .
demonstrated, in a retrospective study, that pulmonary microemboli
were found in 44% of OLT patents.
The study showed that CTCs and circulating tumor microemboli
(CTM) were detected in 52% (23/44) of HCC patients, while, in healthy volunteers, chronic active hepatitis or cirrhosis patients were not detected.
