How can the clot in the left artery be removed?
Q: The TEE (Trans Esophageal Echocardiogram) test of my heart, showed a big clot in the left artery. My ANA (Antinuclear antibody) is positive. Can the clot be removed by operation or medicine? What is the remedy for positive ANA?
A:Going by your description, it seems that you have a left atrial thrombus. We need to determine the cause for the clot. However, the clot needs to be evacuated surgically (Open Heart Surgery) at the earliest. It is not possible to treat this with medicines. You can contact any cardiac surgeon for the surgery at the earliest.
