Hello Ravi and thanks for writing in at HCM
I am Jr. to cardiologist and wants to help you out. You have not written any thigh about the site of the clot in your query. The nature of treatment lots depend on the site and size of the clot and the symptoms caused by it. As you have said you have done Color Doppler of neck, so there is more possibility that the clot may be in the carotid artery
. The clot sometimes stops the flow of blood to the brain and causes unconsciousnesses and weakness of one limb for a short period of time. Now coming to the treatment, whether the clot in carotid or anywhere less, it can be treated by:
1. Anti-coagulant drugs: you are taking only a minimum dose of anti-coagulant drugs i.e. alone asprin. You can also take drug like clopivas along with asprin, which are more effective. But please consult your doctor before taking it.
implantation: If the block is in the carotid or internal carotid than it may need revascularization with stent implantaton. By this the normal blood flow is achieved.
Consult your doctor or cardiologist with your all reports or scan the MRI
and color Doppler and send it to me through Health Care Magic and I will be happy to answer it in follow up query.
