Deep vein thrombosis or DVT is a condition in which a blood clot (thrombus) forms in the deep veins. This condition most commonly occurs in the legs and causes pain or swelling in the earlier stages. It may or may not resolve on its own. If DVT doesn't resolve on its own, it creates a risk of pulmonary embolism, postphlebitic syndrome, and other problems too. In a few cases, DVT can be treated with medications, but some people may require surgical treatment to resolve the condition.
If you have been diagnosed with DVT, get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult our doctors to find out whether you need surgical or medical treatment for DVT.
