The Thrombodderterectomy


Trombendarteriectomy is an operation on the aorta and large arteries that is used to block their thrombus, in order to restore normal blood flow. After exposing the vessel, special vascular clamps are placed above and below the occlusion site, the artery wall is split longitudinally, the inner membrane is peeled off from the middle, then the inner shell is crossed transversely in the uppermost and the lowest part of the wound and removed together with the thrombus. The lower edge of the inner membrane is sewn to the wall of the artery to prevent it from being wrapped by the blood stream. A vascular suture is applied to the wound of the artery (see).
