Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)


Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body. This is a serious condition that is associated with another name called thromboembolism. A DVT can break loose and cause a serious life-threatening issue to the lung called a pulmonary embolism

Deep vein thrombosis can occur without noticeable symptoms

Vein trauma or damage to the veins can increase an individual’s chances of developing a DVT. Sitting for a long period of time accompanied with certain medications can also increase the chances of occurrences.


Injury to a vein, surgery, or certain medications can cause damage that prevents blood from circulating or clotting like normal. This will cause a blood clot (thrombus) to form. Clotting can happen for a variety of reasons including:
Vein Injury:

Damage to the veins that narrow the vessels and block blood flow.


Damage can occur during surgery to the vein walls which can lead to the formation of a blood clot. Little to no movement after surgery can increase the chances of a pulmonary embolism.


Certain medications can increase the chances of a blood clot forming.

If you develop these symptoms, contact your Doctor or seek medical attention immediately.
