The Dangers Of Deep Vein Thrombosis

What Causes DVT?

The blood clots of deep vein thrombosis can be caused by anything that prevents blood from flowing freely throughout the body and clotting normally, such as an injury to a vein, surgery especially on the lower extremities, specific medications, and limited movement. One of the most predominant risk factors for developing DVT is if a patient inherits a blood-clotting disorder that allows their blood to clot more easily. However, the inherited condition might not cause blood clots alone unless it is combined with one or more risk factors.
