Patients with advanced cancers are also prone to develop
thrombosis or clots in different vessels . More commonly it is in veins such as leg veins and these clots can embolise and lodge in the lungs creating a life threatening situation .
We regularly perform clot dissolving procedures by accessing the thrombosed vessel using
catheters and give lysing agents within the clot . We also sometimes place a filter to prevent
clots from migrating to the lungs .
India is the third highest country in terms of cancer deaths and this graph is increasing by the day. Established in 2007,Vydehi Cancer Centre, is consistently working 24*7 for the benefit of the patients and our endeavour is to serve them and our society to help fight this dreaded disease.
