What is DVT?

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms, usually in regions of slow or disturbed blood flow, in one or more of the large veins in your body, usually in the lower limbs, leading to either partially or completely blocked circulation. It can cause leg pain/tenderness or swelling, usually in one leg, reddish or bluish skin discoloration, or leg warm to touch but may occur without any symptoms.
