What is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)? 

Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT is a medical condition in which blood clots start to form inside the deeper veins and cause pain and swelling with no other symptoms. A blood clot can form if you have certain medical conditions that make you vulnerable to clotting or if you don’t move your legs for a long time. It can be very dangerous if not treated on time as the blood clots may break loose and travel to the lungs through the bloodstream. It will eventually lead to pulmonary embolism and may cause breathing problems. 

To prevent this from happening, it is crucial that you seek proper treatment for DVT promptly. You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult the best vascular surgeons in Bangalore who will help to resolve this problem safely and effectively.

Diagnosis

The doctor asks about the symptoms and carries out a thorough physical exam to look for areas of swelling, discolored skin, and soreness. If the doctor suspects the presence of an underlying blot clot, they ask for certain tests.

Deep vein thrombosis is usually diagnosed through a Doppler’s ultrasound. In Doppler’s ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are used to check the flow of blood through the veins. The ultrasound detects the blood flow and an impaired blood flow indicates the presence of blood clots in the vein.

The doctor may conduct a series of ultrasounds to check if the blood clot is growing or to look for new blood clots that may have formed.

Surgery

In the beginning, the doctor will provide medications (blood thinners like heparin, warfarin, enoxaparin, or fondaparinux) or suggest using compression stockings to improve the blood flow and minimize the chances of blood clot formation.

If medical treatment doesn’t work, the doctor will recommend other methods. Deep vein thrombosis is most commonly done in combination with one or more of the following treatment methods:

  • Thrombolysis
  • Anticoagulant medications
  • Angioplasty & stenting
  • Thrombectomy
  • Placing a vena cava filter in the deep vein.

Thrombolysis- It is also known as thrombolytic therapy or fibrinolytic therapy in which certain medications are used to break the blood clots that are formed in the vessels. The most common medicine that is used in this technique is tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) but there are other medicines also available.

IVC (Inferior Vena Cava) Filter- The IVC filter is a metal device that looks like an umbrella and can stop the blood clot’s movements. It is placed inside the main vein, i.e., the inferior vena cava that runs through the belly. An incision is made around the abdomen and a catheter is inserted into the vein using an X-ray guide. The filter is placed over the blood clot inside the vein and it attaches itself to the walls of the vein.

Thrombectomy- Also known as venous thrombectomy, it is a procedure that involves surgical removal of the vein clot. During thrombectomy, the vascular surgeon will make an incision into the blood vessel to remove the blood clot. Then the blood vessels and tissues are also repaired.

Angioplasty- In some cases, angioplasty or the balloon suction technique may be used to keep the vein inflated and a stent may be used to hold it open while the blood clot is being removed. When the blood clot is extracted, the balloon is also taken out simultaneously.

The surgical methods available for DVT treatment are not without risks. Therefore, you should always make sure that you are getting treatment from the best vascular specialist in Bangalore.

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:

  • Avoid Sitting Still- As the condition most commonly arises in the legs, make sure that you don’t sit still for long periods. Don’t cross your legs for long as it can also block the blood blow. And if you can’t do anything about moving, lift your legs above your heart level. This will make it easier for the nerves to take blood from the legs to the heart as they won’t have to work against gravity. 
  • Don’t Smoke- Smoking severely affects the nervous system and makes the blood vessels weaker. This increases the risk of developing DVT. Therefore, you need to quit this unhealthy habit as soon as possible. 
  • Exercise and Maintain a Healthy Weight- Being overweight makes you more vulnerable to DVT. Therefore, it is necessary that you maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of blood clots by exercising. 

Along with these, it is also advisable that you eat a healthy and balanced diet and visit a doctor every two years for a full-body checkup to identify the health risks in an early stage.
