FAQ


What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot develops in a deep vein of the body. It usually occurs in the legs, though there are instances in which clots develop in the arms or pelvis. The condition can be extremely serious. If the clot breaks free from the area in which it developed, it can travel into the bloodstream and cause problems throughout the body. The biggest risk occurs when the clot travels to the lungs and causes a life-threatening condition known as pulmonary embolism.

Even if the clot never leaves its point of origin, deep vein thrombosis can cause a variety of health issues. Clots can damage the vein, causing swelling and pain. If deep vein thrombosis is chronic, patients can develop leg sores and their skin may turn a different color.

Causes and Symptoms

The most common cause of blood clots is inactivity. This is why people who are paralyzed or immobilized because of disease are at high risk for developing clots. In some instances, clots can form as quickly as during a plane flight or long car ride. Clots can also develop as the result of surgery or in response to an injury. If your blood clots easily, you stand a greater risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.

There is a variety of symptoms associated with deep vein thrombosis. The most common is swelling of the legs or affected area, but you may also see redness or the skin might feel warmer than usual. Achiness in response to movement or a squeezing sensation might also occur, though this is not always the case. Usually if there is pain, it will worsen over time and become more persistent until it is a constant problem.

Unfortunately, some people suffer from deep vein thrombosis with no symptoms at all. It is not until pulmonary embolism occurs that they realize there was a problem with clotting.

Diagnosing Deep Vein Thrombosis

Most doctors order an ultrasound when a patient describes the symptoms associated with deep vein thrombosis. This test measures blood flow in the veins and can detect clotting issues. X-rays may also be used to spot blood clots.

If a clot is detected, your doctor will likely prescribe an anti-coagulant to thin your blood. This reduces the risk of the clot increasing in size and also makes it less likely the clot will break away and travel to other parts of the body. Some patients are only required to take the anticoagulants until the clot has disappeared. They are then monitored for future problems related to clotting. If it is possible to determine the cause of the clot, your doctor might make adjustments to your current health routine to prevent future problems.
