Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)


Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a medical condition characterized by the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein, typically in the legs. This can lead to reduced blood flow, causing pain, swelling, and warmth in the affected area. DVT can be dangerous as the clot may break loose and travel through the bloodstream, potentially leading to life-threatening complications such as pulmonary embolism.
