Hillary Clinton's Hospital Care for Clot Continues
Date:1/2/2013

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 2 (HealthDay News) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remained in a New York hospital on Wednesday, as she continues to be treated for a blood clot in her head.

Her doctors at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital are treating the obstruction -- which they believe is linked to a concussion she suffered in December -- with blood thinning medication. Clinton, 65, will remain in the hospital until the appropriate dose is determined, according to published reports.

The clot is in a location outside of the brain, in a vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind Clinton's right ear. The general term for the condition is called cerebral venous thrombosis. Clinton's doctors reported that she did not experience any stroke or neurological injury from the clot, and they expect her to make a full recovery.

Clinton was admitted late Sunday after doctors discovered the clot during a regular follow-up exam, said Clinton's State Department spokesman, Philippe Reines, in a statement.

Clinton canceled most of her public events over the past few weeks because of the head injury.

According to the Associated Press, the clot is in the space between the brain and the skull behind Clinton's right ear. Doctors are optimistic that blood thinners (anticoagulants) will dissolve it.

In the meantime, Clinton's spirits are high and she is progressing well, according to a statement from Dr. Lisa Bardack of the Mount Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University, the AP reported.

Doctors not involved in Clinton's care said blood thinners are typically used to dissolve clots, and patients may need to be on them for weeks or months.

Dr. David Langer is a brain surgeon and an associate professor at Hofstra-North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine, in New York. He told the Times that clots typically form in the leg or in a major vein
