Sorry, no etymologies found.
NMT is currently investigating the potential connection between a common heart defect that allows a right-to-left shunt or flow of blood through a defect like a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and brain attacks such as embolic stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and migraine headaches.
Have another embolic stroke mid-pamper-crap why don't you.
Macrovascular diseases include heart attacks, cerebrovascular accidents (embolic/ischemic strokes), end stage kidney disease (with renal artery disease), and blindness (through retinal artery disease).
This latest labeling change includes data from two recent studies that found a two-fold increase in thrombo-embolic events associated with the patch (as well as a third study that found no increased risk).
Increased C-section leads to longer recovery and hospital stay, and obesity can be associated with increased post-op infections, wound healing delays or thrombo-embolic complications - all of which can further delay hospital discharge post-partum.
Although the features and exact mechanisms of the increased mortality require better delineation, both thrombo-embolic-vascular disease and tumor progression appear to be involved.
The primary issue in the rejections centered around a claim element reciting embolic compositions having a viscosity of at least 150cSt centiStokes at 40 degrees C.
On the contrary, the references all suggest that low viscosity was a desired property in embolic compositions.
I think your mother did have some type of neuro event, and that her speech garbled so quickly may be a medication - or it may be an embolic event.
Disorders of the clotting system and family history of thrombo-embolic diseases, especially at a young age, should be excluded.
