Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a clot that occurs in a deep vein and has the potential to dislodge, travel to the lungs, occlude a lung artery (pulmonary embolism), and cause a potentially life-threatening event. It is found most commonly in those who have undergone extended periods of inactivity, such as from sitting while traveling or prolonged bed rest after surgery. Symptoms may be absent or subtle, but include swelling and tenderness in the affected extremity, pain at rest and with compression, and raised vein pattern.
