Hannibal Regional Uses Innovative Approach to Treat Blood Clots

Blood clots are extremely dangerous and if not addressed can lead to serious health issues. Unfortunately, they are becoming more and more prevalent. A blood clot can form in any blood vessel in the body. It can end up in the lungs, heart, brain, or other areas if it breaks away and travels through the blood. These migrations can lead to serious complications because the clot disrupts the flow of blood to important organs which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. During the pandemic there has been an increase in the number of blood clots which is worrisome for Dr. Blake Kramer, Interventional Radiologist at Hannibal Regional.
