If such a clot were big enough, it could kill him.  The dime-sized clot now lodged in a blood vessel in the right lung is “a potentially dangerous situation but not critical at this time,” Dr. John Lungren told a news conference on Wednesday in Long Beach, Calif.  “There is a very good chance of recovery but it will take some time,” Lungren said at Memorial Hospital Medical Center of Long Beach, where Nixon went on Monday for treatment.  Through Heart  A hospital spokesman re- j vealed the clot had passed through Nixon’s heart before lodging in the lung. If it had blocked a heart artery, it could have been fatal.  Lungren said Nixon took news of the gelatin-like clot “as he normally takes anything else — it’s another problem.”  Such a clot — called an embolus — kills lung tissue around it. The size of the dead lung area in Nixon’s case was not disclosed.  Doctors not connected with Nixon’s case said on Wednesday j the most acute danger from the clot in the former President’s lung probably has passed.  Ever-Present • But there is an ever-present danger that a new clot arising from the thrombo-phlebitis in Nixon’s left leg might become dislodged and make its way through veins and the heart to blood vessels in the lungs.  If the clot were big enough, it might block the pulmonary artery that connects the heart with the lungs. Such a blockage | could produce death in minutes.  If it were smaller and blocked blood flow to one lung but left 1  the other free, Nixon's life! might be in extreme danger But doctors might have time to; attempt surgery or perhaps use! a new experimental drug that! has shown promising results in removing large clots in the! lungs.  Can’t Predict  Doctors lack definitive methods for predicting if such a new,: larger clot might form. But the danger is a constant consideration in a patient such as Nixon. who has a history of recurrent ; thrombo-phlebitis.  Nixon’s current medical troubles began last summer when his phlebitis flared up.  For reasons doctors don’t un- j derstand well, a blood clot formed in a vein near Nixon’s! left knee.  After Nixon returned from a trip to the Middle East, his personal physician. Dr. Walter Tkach, said the clot had become fixed to the wall of the vein.  No Pain  But after Nixon resigned, the phlebitis returned. Indications were the clot or clots were present in deeper veins in his thigh, symptoms of a worsened condition.  There has been speculation that stress on the former Pres-  (Continued: Page 3, Col. 8 )  Tell Loss Of Soviet Destroyer  'Unbelievable to Me/ His Counsel Asserts  COLUMBUS, (la.
