Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a medical issue that occurs when a blood clot becomes lodged in one of the deep veins of the body.

This usually occurs in the lower body – either the lower legs, thighs, or pelvis – but clots can also become lodged in the deep veins of the arms, abdominal region, or brain.

Signs of DVT may include:

  • Sudden swelling, usually in the legs
  • Pain or sensitivity
  • Redness or discoloration
  • Affected area may feel unusually warm

If you notice any symptoms of DVT, it’s critical that you see your cardiologist. Left untreated, it can cause serious complications, such as a pulmonary embolism.
