Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a potentially life-threatening condition which occurs when blood clots in a deep vein. It is most likely to happen in the leg but may occur in other parts of the body. Each year, an estimated 350,000 Americans are diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis. 

Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis include pain, swelling, warm skin, red or discolored skin, visible veins, and tired legs. Pregnancy, a sedentary lifestyle, being overweight, smoking, and being over 60 years of age increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis.  The risk of deep vein thrombosis can be reduced by wearing compression socks on long flights to help prevent blood clots and swelling.

Drug classes commonly used to treat deep vein thrombosis include factor Xa inhibitors, direct thrombin inhibitors, fractionated heparins (LMWHS), and vitamin K antagonists.
