Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the most common type of venous thromboembolism (VTE), a blood clot that forms in a vein. As many as 600,000 VTE events occur each year in the United States. DVT, a blood clot that typically forms in a deep vein in the leg, can lead to serious health complications, such as pulmonary embolism.

More About This Condition

DVT is a blood clot that partially or completely blocks blood flow through a vein deep in the body, particularly the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis. DVT puts people at a higher risk of a pulmonary embolism because clot can break free from its original location, travel through the bloodstream, and lodge in a blood vessel in the lungs.
