Although there has not been a comparison of IVUS and venography for thrombotic occlusion, IVUS has been shown to be more sensitive than venography in detecting nonthrombotic lesions (12, 13).
Despite the lack of a stuttering thrombotic occlusion of an epicardial coronary artery during an AMI induced by plaque rupture, our investigation of biomarkers after TASH is a valuable model because it closely mimics the pathophysiology of AMI and allows a chronological assignment of biomarker release in relation to the initiation of myocardial infarction.
During laparotomy it was determined that she had a gangrenous small bowel in conjunction with thrombotic occlusion of her superior mesenteric vein.
This eventually leads to thrombotic occlusion of the vasa vasora with transmural necrosis of the vessel wall, probably due to ischaemia.
Coronary thrombotic occlusion has been reported in patients with myocardial bridge who present with acute MI.
Grafts of high-flow, low-resistance arteries (greater than 6 mm in diameter) such as aortoiliac, femoral, and major visceral arteries rarely have thrombotic occlusion and offer 5-to 10-year patency rates of 80%-90%.
In another report, thrombotic occlusion of LAD in a patient with aortic valve prosthesis was treated successfully with balloon dilatation and stenting by Kiernan et al.
Suspected thrombotic occlusion of the catheter tip is often treated with thrombolytic agents, which incur significant cost.
The coronary sinus (CS) lead implanted in 2008 with the CRT device had stopped pacing the heart, and a thrombotic occlusion precluded replacement of the CS lead, despite attempts to re-open the occluded vein.
Acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (AMI) results mostly from acute thrombotic occlusion of an epicardial coronary artery, typically after disruption or erosion of an atherosclerotic plaque and exposure of thrombogenic material to circulating blood.
