Caption: Thrombus (blood clot) in leg. Angiograms (blood vessel X-rays) of the femoral artery in the right leg of a 54 year old man (frontal view). There is a thrombus (blood clot) blocking the artery and stopping blood flow to the lower leg. Thrombo-aspiration surgery is being undertaken (top right scan) to restore blood flow. Thrombo-aspiration involves the insertion of a thin suction tube into the artery to suck out the thrombus. A balloon angioplasty (bottom left scan) is then carried out to hold the vessel open. Balloon angioplasty involves the insertion of a deflated balloon in the artery, which is inflated to push the artery wall outward and widen it.
