The well-known actress and Hollywood diva Zsa Zsa Gabor had to be hospitalized again. The now 91-year-old had to be taken to a clinic in Los Angeles due to a blood clot in one of her legs, according to doctors. Previously, the actress had pain and swelling in one of her legs. Gabor is currently receiving anticoagulant drugs to stop the blood clot.
According to media reports, the husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said that his wife had very severe pain and swollen legs. Gabor had only fallen out of bed in July of this year. As a result, the diva had to have a new hip inserted because the hip bone was broken. After that, the suffering had no end. After the release, the actress had to spend several days in a clinic again. Her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, suffered a weakness due to the exertion and worries in the summer of 2010 and had to receive medical care for a few days.
Leg vein thrombosis causes painful swelling in patients and can lead to lifelong consequential damage. If a blood clot is not detected in time, part of the blood clot can reach the lungs via the bloodstream and the heart and trigger life-threatening pulmonary embolism there. Dangerous pulmonary embolism as a secondary disease kills around 40,000 patients annually in Germany alone. In order to stop the blood clot, medication is used to inhibit blood clotting. In order to prevent thrombosis from developing, active movement is the most sensible preventive measure. (sb)
