What is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?

Blood ClotsDeep Vein Thrombosis, commonly referred to as "DVT", occurs with poor blood circulation and a blood clot, or thrombosis, develops in one of the large veins of the legs. The mechanism and the importance of impaired blood flow was described by Rudolph Virchow some 150 years ago, long before the molecular chain of events in the formation of DVT were clarified.

When a blood clot forms in a large deep vein it is a high risk the blood clot will break free and travel through the vein.

Then it is called an embolus. If an embolus travels from the legs and lodges in a lung artery, a condition known as Pulmonary Embolism, PE, has occurred. PE is a potentially fatal condition if not immediately diagnosed and treated.

The process by which blood clots occur and travel through the veins is known as venous thromboembolism (VTE), the collective term for DVT and PE.

Regular and proper leg exercise is extremely important to minimize the risk of developing a deep vein thrombosis with the high risks of developing a more serious condition.
