Dr. Brook Spencer The procedure only takes a couple of hours and,  in most cases,  patients are back to their normal routine within a week. “You blow up two balloons at the end, which traps the clot in the vein, so it can’t travel to her lungs or anywhere else unsafe. We place a small wire through there. It uses a small motor that creates an egg beater effect. It breaks  the blood clot into small pieces,” said Dr. Spencer. The new techniques remove a lot of the risk and amount of time spent at the hospital.
