Blood clots more commonly form in veins than arteries, due to the slower flow in veins. There are a number of conditions which can cause blood clot to form in arteries, and these either form directly in the affected artery, or form upstream and get carried by the blood flow, thus blocking an artery downstream.
At Yarra Vascular Surgeons, we carefully assess the patient to determine the precise cause for an arterial blood clot. In appropriate cases, we aim to eliminate any fresh blood clot expediently to restore function to the limb or organ that is threatened. It is often crucial to initiate medication in order to prevent the clot from occurring again. Sometimes specialised investigations and physician consultation is required to fully manage the underlying condition.
