Deep vein thrombosis is a serious, potentially deadly condition that occurs when a blood clot forms within a deep vein in the thigh, lower leg, pelvis, or arm. DVT can lead to life-threatening complications if the blood clot breaks free and travels to the lungs, which is . The internal jugular vein was the most common site of thrombosis. The presence of a central venous catheter was the only factor found to be a significant risk factor for an acute UTDVT .
Introduction. Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism constitute venous thromboembolism. Deep vein thrombosis occurs most often in the legs, but can form in the veins of the arms, 1 and in the mesenteric and cerebral veins. We focus on deep vein thrombosis of the legs and pulmonary by: Thrombosis had been recognised as a disease since around BC, but the word thrombosis was first used by Claudius Galenos ( – AD). Pulmonary embolism was described for the first time by Wiseman in but the relationship between venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism was not clarified until the s by Rudolf Virchow.
Deep vein thrombosis is the most common cause of a pulmonary embolism. Therefore, the term venous thromboembolism (VTE) may refer to deep vein thrombosis and/or the complication, pulmonary embolism. Other less frequent sources of pulmonary embolism are a fat embolus, amniotic fluid embolus, air bubbles, and a deep vein thrombosis in the upper body.
