Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Blood clots in head?
Can you tell me that we can cure all kinds of blood clots, or Is there is any possibilites that blood clots will leads to death ? if we find the blood clots in head after 10 years?
Thank you .
It's hard to answer these questions without knowing more about the situations. "Clots" in the brain can develop over a short period of time or longer, depending on if they were in the veins or the arteries of the brain. The effectiveness of the treatment and the risk of death depends on a lot of factors that all need to be considered before these questions can be answered.
