DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS TREATMENT
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) kill more people than heart attacks (myocardial infarction) every year. DVT is a large blood clot that usually happens in the legs and/or pelvis. Sometimes part of the blood clot can break off and travel to the lungs causing pulmonary embolism, which is potentially lethal. More than 900,000 Americans get DVT every year. It is important to note that 50% of people with DVT experience no symptoms at all.
For those who do have symptoms, the most common ones are leg swelling, leg pain or tenderness as well as red, hot, or discolored skin. Anyone with leg swelling should be fully evaluated for blood clots or venous insufficiency. Risk factors for DVT include family history of blood clots, hormone therapy including birth control pills, pregnancy or childbirth, injuries such as broken bones, prolonged immobilization such as hospital stay or lengthy travel, obesity, and smoking.
