What is deep vein thrombosis?

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) refers to blood clots that form in the deep veins of your body, most commonly in your legs. The deep veins are the ones that you cannot see on your body surface. When a blood clot (termed thrombus within the body) forms suddenly in a deep vein and stops the flow of blood towards the heart, the vein becomes bigger and can no longer effectively drain the affected leg of venous blood. If large enough, the obstruction and lack of proper venous emptying of the leg thus causes symptoms such as pain, tenderness, and swelling.

What is venous thromboembolism

Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) refers to the fact that blood clots in the deep veins formed in one part of the body are prone to break off and travel to the heart and lungs causing potentially lethal results.

What is a pulmonary embolus

When the blood clot travels to the lungs, it is called a pulmonary embolus (PE). Symptoms of a pulmonary embolus, when present, include sudden shortness of breath and chest pain, or shock.
