Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein deep within your body, usually in your legs. Although you may not have any signs of DVT, symptoms can include swelling and leg pain. Deep vein thrombosis may develop if you have certain blood-clotting conditions, if you don’t move for a long time (such as after surgery or long plane flights) or if you’re bedridden for a long period of time.

Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis symptoms may include:

  • Leg pain, often starting in the calf region and causing cramping or soreness
  • Redness of affected area
  • Swelling in the affected area
  • Regular screenings can help your doctor diagnose problems before they become worse.

Causes of Deep Vein Thrombosis

If you have poor circulation or improper blood clotting because of a health problem or medical condition or injury to a limb, the risk of developing a blood clot in the deep veins in your body increases dramatically.

When to Visit Your Doctor

If you’re having leg pain from poor circulation in your legs, consult with your primary care doctor about what to do. Discussing your symptoms can help reduce the likelihood of developing a life-threatening complication. If you have DVT symptoms, seek medical attention right away and call 911. 

Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment at Riverview Health

Depending on your condition, your doctor may recommend the following type of treatments for deep vein thrombosis:

  • Blood thinners to help reduce your blood’s ability to form a clot
  • Clot-busters to break up the clot if your condition is very serious and routine blood thinners aren’t working
  • Compression stockings to help prevent swelling associated with DVT
  • Filters if you can’t take medications (A filter is inserted into a large vein to prevent loose clots from causing a blockage in your lungs)
  • Placement of a catheter (combined with ultrasound and a clot-buster) into the vein to break up and dissolve the DVT.
