Swelling and pain in the legs, signs of this dangerous disease:
DVT i.e. Deep Wayne thrombosis This is a blood clot, which is formed in the depths of the nerves of the body. The blood clot occurs when the blood becomes thick. Most blood clots are on the lower part of the shank or thigh. Blood clots present in the body’s veins when they spread in the bloodstream, they are also afraid to burst, and if this happens, then this torn clot is called ambulance. It can stop blood flow by reaching the lung arteries.
This situation is called Pulmonary Embolism or PE. This is very dangerous. It can damage lungs and other organs and cause death. Compared with the lower part of the leg or other parts of the body, the thighs are more afraid of the bleeding of blood clots. Blood clots are more common in the nerves present in the skin, but these blood clots do not burst and they are not prone to getting PE.
What are the causes of having blood clots or DVT in body veins?
Blood clots in the body occur only when the inner layer of the veins becomes damaged. Due to physical, chemical or biological factors, nerves can cause severe infections, swelling or immunity. Not only this, nerves can also be affected due to surgery. In this case, chances of having blood clots increase. After surgery, the flow of blood decreases, because the patient walks short. If you have been bedridden for a long time, are sick or traveling, even then blood flow is reduced. In such a situation the blood becomes thicker. Sometimes the risk of blood clotting increases due to jeans or family history. The risk of clotting is also increased due to the consumption of hormone therapy or contraceptive pills.
