FAQ


How is Deep Vein Thrombosis Treated?

Deep vein thrombosis is a condition that involves the formation of blood clots in deep veins of the body, usually within the legs. It can develop into a serious condition that is sometimes fatal. There are ways to treat deep vein thrombosis, most of which prevent the growth of blood clots and improve circulation.

Medication

The most common method of treating deep vein thrombosis involves prescription medication. Anticoagulants are usually prescribed because they prevent clots from growing larger and limit new clots from forming. Unfortunately, medications cannot dissolve existing clots. Heparin is a medication that is injected through a needle or IV. It can be used by patients at home or given by a doctor. It works immediately and is usually the first step taken in treating deep vein thrombosis. Most doctors discontinue its use once other medications have kicked in.

Warfarin is a coagulant given orally. It takes several days to take effect, which is why heparin is used in the meantime. Rivaroxaban is another option for oral medication.

Most medication methods are temporary, but the time a patient uses the medication varies based on their personal circumstances. There is debate over the “ideal” length of time to take medication, but most patients are given prescriptions for three to six months. There are instances in which medication is given on the semi-permanent basis. For instance, if a person has an ongoing increased risk for deep vein thrombosis, such as cancer, his or her doctor may prescribe anticoagulant medication for the foreseeable future.

Surgery

Surgery to remove a blood clot is rare, but there are cases in which it is necessary. It is most often used in instances when a clot is extremely large. Since medication cannot dissolve existing clots, it may be necessary to remove it from the body manually. Unfortunately, surgery increases a person’s risk for developing blood clots, so it is used in extreme cases only.

Other Treatments

In addition to medication and in instances when surgery is not necessary, there are other methods that can be used to treat deep vein thrombosis. Some of these options make medication more effective, while others might alleviate the need for medication all together.

Compression stockings are worn by many who are at risk for developing blood clots. Stockings are often worn following surgery or other events that increase clotting, and in general to improve circulation in the legs.

Vena cava filters are sometimes given to people suffering a high risk for blood clots. This is often the case for cancer patients, those with bleeding ulcers, and those who are at risk who cannot take anticoagulant medication. The filters prevent clots from dislodging and travel elsewhere in the body, but they cannot prevent clots from forming.
