Clinical signifcance and molecular characteristics of circulating tumor cells and circulating tumor microemboli
in patients with small-cell lung cancer.
However, surgery can increase the risk of metastasis by spreading tumor microemboli
and increasing expression of pro-angiogenic factors that aid in tumor growth such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) (3, 4).
 The diabetic individuals were not only susceptible for wider area of infarction, but also to microinfarction from repeated, multiple microemboli
from a friable coronary artery thrombus.
Therefore, catheter ablation reduced the progression of dementia in AF patients, and the need to reduce microemboli
during ablation is significant.
(8) Postmortem examination revealed innumerable carcinomatous microemboli
massively showering pulmonary capillaries as the cause of severe pulmonary hypertension.
The impact of microemboli
during cardiopulmonary bypass on neuropsychological functioning.
Successive endovascular seeding of the PA lumen from multiple emboli or microemboli
has been proposed as the pathogenesis of PAPAs in the infectious setting .
In addition, TCD can also be used to detect microemboli

He may have had small microemboli
in place causing his low oxygen saturation before surgery.
CES is usually characterized by showers of microemboli
occurring over a period of time .
