- The vein of Galen (VG), also known as the great cerebral vein, is one of the large blood vessels in the skull draining the cerebrum (brain).
- Not only do the blood clots pose a risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), but they can also cause pulmonary embolism, stroke, and heart attack.
- Patients who undergo surgery are at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE), and a history of prior deep vein thrombosis (DVT) increases that risk.
- Having a blood clot in a vein does not mean you are at increased risk for blood clots in the arteries.
- Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage of the small veins that carry blood away from the retina.
- Previous studies have shown an increased risk of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) in patients with hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes mellitus.
- Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage in the blood supply from the retina -- the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye.
- This cause the blood to pool, resulting in increased pressure on the vein walls.
- The remains of the clot should by now be adhered to your vein walls and will not break off easily.
- The serpentine is most easily seen in the veins, and veins have lower first order birefringence and fibers perpendicular to the vein walls.
- This can lead to a serious condition called pulmonary embolism (PE), which occurs when a clot breaks free from the vein wall and travels to the lungs.
- These images will also allow the doctor to determine if your vein wall is narrowed or damaged, making it prone to more clots in the future.
- A clot, called a thrombus, can form and adhere to the vein wall.
- Before the test begins, the doctor or a technician will use a needle to insert an intravenous (IV) line into a vein in your arm.
- The catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut as the doctor pulls the catheter from the vein.
- The blood sample is obtained by a lab technician or a doctor by inserting a needle into a vein and is relatively painless.

- Each jugular lymph sac retains at least one connection with its jugular vein, the left one developing into the superior portion of the thoracic duct.
- If scar tissue blocks normal circulation through the liver, this blood backs up, leading to increased pressure within the vein (portal hypertension).
- Portal hypertension - elevated pressure in the portal vein - causes bleeding from esophageal varices.

- The primary vein that drains the kidney (renal vein) merges with the vein that takes blood to the heart (vena cava).
- On this medial aspect of each kidney is an opening, called the hilum, which admits the renal artery, the renal vein, nerves, and the ureter.
- Blood flows into the kidney through the renal artery and exits through the renal vein.
- A vein that conducts blood from the digestive organs, spleen, pancreas, and gallbladder to the liver.
- These come from networks in the stomach, intestines, pancreas, and spleen, and carry blood from these organs through a "portal vein" to the liver.
- The portal vein carries blood from the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen to the liver to be processed.
- During the surgery, the vein from the spleen (called the splenic vein) is detached from the portal vein and attached to the left kidney (renal) vein.
- A blood clot in the portal vein or in the splenic vein, which feeds into the portal vein, can cause esophageal varices.
- The presence of the splenic vein at the posterior surface of the pancreas predisposes it to thrombosis from adjacent pancreatic inflammation.

- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT, also called venous thrombosis) is a blood clot that develops in a vein deep in the body.
- Thrombosis or obstruction of the mesenteric venous system, splenic vein, portal vein, or of the hepatic veins (Budd-Chiari syndrome).
- The blood entering the liver from the portal vein will then leave to the inferior vena cava through the hepatic veins.
- The backup of blood (congestion) in the hepatic veins causes blood pressure in the portal vein to increase.
- Each of the lobes is made up of lobules, a vein goes from the centre of each lobule which then joins to the hepatic vein to carry blood out from the liver.
- Budd-Chiari Syndrome - By Howard J. Worman, M. D. Budd-Chiari syndrome is clotting of the hepatic vein, the major vein that leaves the liver.
- After passing through the liver, blood flows into the hepatic vein, which leads into the inferior vena cava to the right side of the heart.
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when blood clots form in the large veins of the legs.
- Deep vein thrombosis, commonly referred to as "DVT", occurs when a blood clot, or thrombus, develops in the large veins of the legs or pelvic area.

- The blood is obtained through a large vein in your arm or through a tube placed in a vein in your neck, chest, or groin.
- A vena cava filter is inserted into the vena cava, the large vein that returns blood to the heart from the abdomen and legs.

- Your doctor looks for redness, warmth, swelling and tenderness in the affected vein and in the surrounding skin.
- Symptoms of superficial phlebitis include pain, swelling, redness, and warmth around the affected vein.
- Regardless of which procedure is chosen, the appearance of the affected vein will improve once the blood flow through the vein has stopped.
- Superficial thrombophlebitis is the name for a blood clot in a vein just below the skin, such as a varicose vein.
- Superficial thrombophlebitis may occur after injury to the vein or the recent use of an intravenous (IV) line or catheter.
- Superficial thrombophlebitis may occur after injury to the vein or the recent use of an intravenous (IV) line.
