About DVT

Deep vein thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot in one or more deep veins of the body. It can be asymptomatic in some cases, but it mostly presents with pain and swelling. It can occur in any part of the body, but it mostly occurs in the leg. It can be very serious as these blood clots can travel through the bloodstream and block the pulmonary blood flow.

DVT treatment focuses on preventing the clot from getting bigger and breaking loose to travel to the lungs or other veins. In the beginning stages, the doctor can manage the condition using medications such as blood thinners, clot busters, and compression stockings. However, the only permanent treatment for DVT is clot removal through laser ablation.

Treatment

Diagnosis

If you are showing symptoms of deep vein thrombosis, the doctor will run a thorough physical exam, including several diagnostic tests such as:

  • Blood test: The first step is conducting a blood exam to determine the complete blood profile. If the patient’s blood has D dimer, a protein produced by blood clots, they might have a DVT.
  • Duplex venous ultrasound: The ultrasound technician performs an ultrasound over the suspected region. If applying pressure to the vein doesn’t compress it, it may have a clot.
  • Venography: The technician injects a dye into the suspected vein with the clot. Then, an X-ray is taken to diagnose the clot. It’s an invasive procedure, so it is avoided whenever possible.
  • MRI: MRI scans are usually performed to diagnose DVT in the abdomen.

Treatment

The doctor devises a treatment plan for the patient after determining the size of the clot and its location. For mild to moderate cases of DVT, the laser ablation technique is the best course of treatment. The doctor uses a high-intensity laser beam to dissolve the clot. Since the treatment is done via laser, it does not involve incisions or stitches. Therefore, there are no postoperative complications of this procedure.

"DVT is an extremely serious condition and any delay only severs the condition further. In Fact, one of the most common risk of delayed treatment is pulmonary embolism. This is when one of the blood clot loosens and travels to the lungs. This will halt the blood flow to your heart, risk heart enlargement and can turn fatal. Therefore, the best advice is, timely treatment."

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of pulmonary embolism?

A thrombus can dislodge from its initial site, travel to the lungs, and block the airflow in the lungs. This is called a pulmonary embolism. Unfortunately, many people only realize they had a DVT after the development of pulmonary embolism. Common symptoms of a pulmonary embolism are:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Fever
Can we prevent the development of DVT?

Patients who have a medical or family history of DVTs are very susceptible to developing a DVT again, so they need to follow specific preventive measures, called proactive protection or prophylaxis. Guidelines for prevention of deep vein thrombosis include:

In mild cases, DVTs can go unnoticed for a long time and can resolve on their own. But there is no guarantee that will definitely happen.

How to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT)?

You can prevent deep vein thrombosis by making simple changes in your life. Here are a few tips that will help:
