Embolism Survivor Speaks of Encounter with Interventional Radiology at WAMC
As JB King sat at home in his recliner, talking to his son, he knew something was wrong. “I’ve never felt like this,” said King. He told his wife who called 911, he was then taken to the Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) Emergency Department where a CT scan was performed. The results were not comforting, he had a saddle pulmonary embolism. Following the discussion of treatment, King was transported to Interventional Radiology (IR) where a thrombectomy was performed.
