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.

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 in 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different treatment strategies for deep vein thrombosis?

Many people try to treat and manage deep vein thrombosis using alternative treatments, but the only permanent cure for DVT is the removal of the thrombus. Some other treatments for treating blood clots in DVT are:-

  • Medications: Patients with very mild or minor DVTs can try to use blood thinners and clot busters to stop the clot from growing and breaking off, but they are not a permanent solution for blood clots as they do not dissolve the existing clot.
  • Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis: For this treatment, the doctor threads a catheter through the clot and inflates the balloon on either side of the clot. Finally, the catheter is used to release a clot-busting medicine to dissolve the clot. It is quick and efficient in restoring the blood flow and saves the valves in the vein. But, it is not considered in many cases as it can cause excessive hemorrhage and stroke.
  • IVC filter: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia for patients who have a complication associated with DVT such as hemorrhage, stroke, uncontrolled hypertension, pregnancy, or if the patient has had surgery recently. In the procedure, the surgeon threads an Inferior Vena Cava Filter through the IVC to restore the normal blood flow.
  • Angioplasty and stenting: Angioplasty is the only recourse of treatment for severe DVT patients with narrow veins. The doctor inserts a stent in the veins to prevent the formation of a new clot and restore the normal blood flow.

Can I travel with deep vein thrombosis?

If you have deep vein thrombosis and are planning to travel, you should follow the given precautions to prevent worsening the condition:-

  • Stay hydrated during the journey
  • Don’t have alcohol during the journey
  • Don’t wear tight clothes
  • Don’t sit still for long stretches of time. Keep doing minimal exercises such as stretching and bending the legs every hour to ensure proper blood flow in the legs.
  • If your work/travel requires you to sit for long stretches of time, you should take 5 min breaks as often as possible to stretch and walk around.
  • Don’t take any sedatives or sleeping pills as they slow down blood circulation.
  • Wear compression stockings/sleeves
