A Blood clot or thrombosis forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can occur without any symptoms.
Leg pain and swelling are commonly seen. Medical conditions and inactivity after going through physical injuries, confinement to the bed are few major causes of DVT.
Blood clots in your veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream, and lodge in your lungs, blocking blood flow. This condition is called pulmonary embolism.
PE is a very serious condition. It can damage the lungs and other organs in the body and cause death. This makes DVT a serious condition that needs medical attention.
Deep vein thrombosis can form if you have certain medical conditions that affect the way your blood circulates or clots.
Being immobile for a very long time can also cause DVTs, such as after surgery or an accident, or when you're confined to bed.
