Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: An Age Based Approach
A man was admitted to the ICU at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center with chronic heart failure. Doctors inserted a heart pump through his leg artery to flood his organs with blood. Since clots can form, the doctors gave the patient anticoagulants to thin his blood. The airways began to seep and clots formed. Over a few days the patient coughed up small worm-like clots, but then he had a hard cough and “ejected” a clot in the exact shape of his right bronchial tree. The case was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, November 29, 2018.
