Arterial Thrombosis

Arterial Thrombosis is the medical term to describe blood clots that occur in the arteries, the vessels that carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body.

Arterial thrombosis is usually associated with a condition called atherosclerosis, which causes narrowing of the arteries.

Clots in the arteries can block blood flow and interfere with heart or brain function, potentially leading to heart attack or stroke.

Arterial thrombosis is usually managed by cardiologists, vascular surgeons or neurologists.
