Get Started

Deep vein thrombosis is a condition that causes a blood clot, also known as a thrombus, to develop within a deep vein. Although this condition is highly treatable, it can cause serious complications if not managed right away. For example, a blood clot can become loose and lodge in the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. To prevent such a complication, patients should seek treatment for this condition. This may include blood thinners, clotbusters, vena cava filters, and compression stockings.

Symptoms

Deep vein thrombosis may not produce notable symptoms, but occasionally, patients may experience the following:

  • Swelling in the affected limb
  • Pain, cramping, or soreness in the calf
  • Numbness or tingling in one or both legs

If you are experiencing Deep Vein Thrombosis symptoms, it may be time for a professional review.
