World first to remove blood clot

ITV News, Daily Mail and The Sun reported that a Guy’s and St Thomas’ patient became the first person in the world to be treated with a new clot-removing device.

 

Jackie Field had the procedure for deep vein thrombosis in her leg as she could not be treated with drugs. Researchers say the device could reduce costs for the NHS and cut down the time patients spend in hospital.

 

Jackie says: “I felt very secure. I wasn’t under general anaesthetic, just had some pain relief.”
