Feline Arterial Thromboembolism
Arterial thromboembolism (ATE) in cats most frequently occurs when a thrombus that develops within the left atrium embolizes a remote site. The most common site is the aortic trifurcation, resulting in abrupt occlusion of blood supply to the hind limbs and ischemia of a large muscle mass. In most cases ATE is a devastating complication of serious underlying heart disease. In this webinar I will discuss the most important aspects of ATE (diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, prevention) in a case-based and evidence-based approach.
