DEEP VEIN
THROMBOSIS (DVT)

  • Deep vein thrombosis occurs when the blood thickens or “clots” in the larger extremity or central veins. It is estimated that nearly 300,000 new cases occur every year in the United States. While these blood clots can cause swelling and pain, the greater concern is the risk of the clot traveling to the heart and lungs leading to breathing difficulty or even death.
