Blood clot patient treated via less invasive technique featured on BJH blog
Mohamed Zayed, MD, PhD
Washington University vascular surgeon Mohamed Zayed, MD, PhD, was involved in the care of a patient who was featured on the Barnes-Jewish Hospital blog
. The patient, Grant Capel, had been treated for bladder cancer, and a follow-up CT scan several years later showed he had a blood clot in the inferior vena cava, the main large vein that carries blood from the lower body to the heart. Zayed used an Angiovac procedure to remove the clot, avoiding surgery.
