Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot has formed deep in the vein. A DVT is an emergent condition that needs proper diagnosis from a trained doctor. If patients do develop DVT, it normally occurs in the legs, though it may occur anywhere in the body. When a blood clot breaks off and travel to other parts of the body, patients can experience some serious health concerns. If you suspect you may have DVT, please contact your doctor as soon as possible.

What is the vascular system?The vascular system is the body’s essential network of blood vessels. The system is made up of interconnected arteries and veins. Arteries pump oxygen-rich blood away from the heart, delivering oxygen to the organs and limbs. Veins take the oxygen depleted blood cells back to the heart.
