What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the name given to blood clots that can form in the veins of your leg following surgery or long periods of bed rest in the hospital, among other reasons. If the clot becomes loose, it can break away and travel through the veins to the heart and lungs and may block a major blood vessel. This is known as a Pulmonary Embolism or PE. Pulmonary Embolism is a serious condition which in some cases may be fatal.
