Vascular Specialty Center Performs Vein Blood Clot Clearance Procedure Baton Rouge, LA — Vascular Specialty Center surgeons recently became the first in the region to remove a venous blood clot (DVT) causing swelling and pain in the leg of a 37-year-old man using a recently approved drug infusion catheter designed for the treatment of DVT (TRELLIS-8) that enables targeted delivery of clot-dissolving drugs. Approximately 400,000 – 600,000 new DVT cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. The majority of patients diagnosed with DVT are treated with anticoagulation therapy alone. While this therapy reduces the risk of fatal pulmonary embolism and further blood clot formation, the underlying blood clot may remain and cause permanent vein damage and postthrombotic syndrome. “Early removal of venous blood clots along with anticoagulation improves patient outcomes including the reduction of postthrombotic syndrome – a condition that can cause skin changes, swelling, pain and disability in a significant number of people whose clot remains in the leg long term,” says Dr. Andrew J. Olinde of Vascular Specialty Center. “We are happy to provide this new therapy to the people of the region.”
