What You Can Do to Limit Your Chance of Developing Deep Vein Thrombosis or a Pulmonary Embolism14/03/2018
Unlike cancer and heart disease, not many Americans realize that vein disease can be a serious concern. The first signs may be spider veins or varicose veins. If left untreated, it can form a blood clot deep within the body, known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). If that blood clot were to break off, and travel through the body to the major organs, known as a pulmonary embolism (PE), it could cause very serious health problems including sudden death.
