Frequently Asked Questions

Why deep vein thrombosis can be so dangerous?

If diagnosed early, people can recover from a pulmonary embolism, but the clot may cause damage to the lungs. A deep vein thrombosis can also cause permanent damage to the vein it’s in by damaging the valves in the vein, which are already weakened due to the venous disease that caused the DVT in the first place.

Why is deep vein thrombosis a serious threat?

Why is deep vein thrombosis a serious threat? If a clot, called a thrombus, forms in the deep veins of the lower leg, the clot could eventually break free. This is a severe health risk. If this occurs, the embolus (free floating clot fragment) will go through the vascular system, through the heart, and eventually may become lodged in the lungs. ...

Who is most likely to get deep vein thrombosis (DVT)?

DVT is more likely to happen if you are over 60, overweight, smoke, have had DVT before, take the contraceptive pill or HRT, have cancer or heart failure, or have varicose veins. You can also be at risk of DVT in some temporary situations such as being confined to bed, going on a long journey, or if you are pregnant or dehydrated.

How does deep vein thrombosis affect the circulatory system?

Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot in any part of the circulatory system. The clot may block a blood vessel, causing potentially serious health effects.
