Deep Venus Thormbosis
Deep venous thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot develops in one of the deep veins of the body, typically in the legs. This clots forms as a result of blood flow slowing in the affected vein, which can happen with an injury, obesity, recent surgery or pregnancy. Sometimes a deep venous thrombosis develops for no known reason at all or as a result of a genetic predisposition. If this condition is left untreated, it can be very dangerous. A blood clot in the legs can dislodge from its current position and travel to the lungs, heart or brain, where it can become life threatening. For this reason, it is important to seek treatment for deep venous thrombosis at the first sign of symptoms.
