Treatment of Deep Vein Thrombosis
Have you been recently diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT)? Surely there are many
questions going through your mind after you learn the news of something that can potentially
be so serious. Deep vein thrombosis has many causes such as inactivity, heart disease as well
as hormone therapy including birth control pills. Before you get too worried about your
health, you can find comfort in that there are treatment options for deep vein thrombosis.
Many treatment options for deep vein thrombosis are minimally invasive. This means there
should not be a long recovery from the treatment. We will cover what the treatment does for
you as well as what types of treatments are typically given. Your doctor will use the
treatment that gives you the best outlook for a full recovery and minimal risks to your
The Purpose of Treatment for Deep Vein Thrombosis
The main purpose of treatment for your deep vein thrombosis relies on where yours is located
how severe it is. Doctors generally want to:
The treatment options for you will depend on your medical history relating to blood clotting,
heart conditions, overall health and current medications you are taking. Your doctor may
recommend discontinuing use of certain medications that can make blood clotting issues worse,
like oral contraception or hormone replacement therapy.
Types of Treatment for Deep Vein Thrombosis
The treatment type depends on what your doctor wishes to do with your particular case.
Medications called anticoagulants are used to help thin your blood. These drugs will keep the
clot from growing and or breaking off. Blood thinners also help keep your veins clear of new
clots by preventing them from forming. These anticoagulants go by the name of Heparin and
If your doctor determines that you need further treatment other than a medication, they will
look into thrombolytic agents which can actually bust the clot and help your body dissolve it
with minimal damage to your veins. This procedure uses a catheter to direct the thrombolytic
drug into the vein that is affected. If they see that your vein is narrowed during the
procedure, they may insert a type of balloon or a stent that will help widen the vein so they
can reduce the likelihood that you will have further clots in that area.
Alternative Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatments
If the previous two types of treatment cannot be used, there are some types of alternative
treatments that can work. A filter in the vena cava can catch clots and prevent them from
traveling to another area of your body. The filter still allows for blood to pass through,
but not clots.
Use of compression devices and elevation may also prove to be beneficial to reduce your
symptoms of deep vein thrombosis. If all else fails, a surgical procedure called a venous
thrombectomy may have to be performed to remove the clot that is deep in your vein. After
reviewing all treatment options with your doctor, you can decide which approach fits your
lifestyle and health best.
