What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Sep 8, 2008
Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT, is a blood clot that forms deep in the veins. Most often than not, these clots are located in the lower extremities, namely the lower leg, thigh and the pelvis. This can be an extremely painful and potentially lethal condition, as the clot can break off and travel through the blood stream. The clot, called an embolus, can travel to essential organs like the lungs, causing what is known as a pulmonary embolism.

This is a life-threatening situation as the lodged clot can cause damage to other organs, and may, in some cases, result in death.

Around 1-3 people in 1000 develop DVT is in the UK annually, causing severe pain and leaving numerous lives at risk for complications due to pulmonary embolism (PE).

What are the symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Some of the more common symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis are redness, swelling, pain, swelling, inflammation, fever, heart palpitations, joint pain, soreness, and unexplained coughing.

While many blood clots are too small to cause any real trouble, some are large enough to create a PE episode.

The primary symptoms of pulmonary embolism are chest pain, increased heart rate and respiratory problems.

DVT can mimic many other diseases however, so it is always best to have your doctor run specific diagnostic tests if you feel you have DVT.

What are the causes of Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Deep vein thrombosis can occur for a number of reasons, principally, injury to the blood vessel wall, post surgery complications, heart failure, advancing age, pregnancy and the use off birth control pills.

Being bed ridden can also cause DVT, as it restricts the blood flow. Likewise, sitting for long periods of time can cause an embolus to develop. People who are overweight are in a high-risk group for developing DVT as well. No matter how DVT is caused however, the fact remains that the clots can cause severe and sometimes debilitating pain for the victim of the disease.
