DVT Dangers

Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein located deep inside your body.

Deep vein thrombosis, also called DVT, often occurs in your legs and can be very serious because blood clots in your veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream and lodge in your lungs.
