Identifying & Treating Blood Clots at Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center
Blood clotting is something that can potentially save your life, as it restricts blood flow when you have an open wound. It can, however, prove to be fatal when not assisting with an injury, causing heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, heart failure or strokes.
Take care of your heart health in Goldsboro, NC by coming to Wayne Vascular & Vein to screen for and treat blood clots.
How Blood Clots Form
Blood clots form when they are alerted by your body that there is an injury. Platelets within your blood then literally stick together to act as a plug around the affected area. After that occurs, proteins within your blood rush together to help as a backup for the platelets, strengthening the blood clot.
Clots, however, don’t need only an injury to form. They can also be triggered by excess levels of plaque in your arteries, or if you have irregular blood flow patterns, such as with deep vein thrombosis.
