The same effect may be produced by the plugging of a vessel with a thrombus.
It is probable that in most of these cases the thrombus was secondary to the ulcer.
Detachment of a portion of the thrombus, according to Hoare, may result in the lodgment of an embolus in the brain or kidneys.
The thrombus stirred and came free, rushing toward Kemmer's heart.
If the obstructed vein is superficial, the seat of the thrombus is indicated by the resistance and sensitiveness of the part.
The softening of the thrombus, on the contrary, is always a source of danger.
A thrombus, considered as a cause of lameness, may find a place among these understood mysteries.
Sometimes the thrombus may be traced back to the placental site.
The mechanical effect of a thrombus varies according to the venous or arterial seat of the same.
When this artery is blocked close to its origin by an embolus or thrombus, total aphasia results.
1690s, Modern Latin, from Greek thrombos "lump, piece, clot of blood, curd of milk."
thrombus throm·bus (thrŏm'bəs)
n. pl. throm·bi (-bī)
A fibrinous clot formed in a blood vessel or in a chamber of the heart.
Plural thrombi (thrŏm'bī')
A clot consisting of fibrin, platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells that forms in a blood vessel or in a chamber of the heart and can obstruct blood flow. The rupture of atherosclerotic plaques can cause arterial thrombosis (the formation of thrombi), while tissue injury, decreased movement, oral contraceptives, prosthetic heart valves, and various metabolic disorders increase the risk for venous thrombosis. A thrombus in a coronary artery can cause a heart attack. Compare embolus.
