Go Through Radiology Treatment To Diagnose Deep Venous Thrombosis
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) refers to the condition of blood clot in the deep vein system of the body. The formation of the blood clot creates some serious conditions that may be fatal or difficult to diagnose. It can cause pulmonary embolism and permanent damage to the leg. This disease is a type of thrombophlebitis and also called as venous thrombosis.
The blood clot commonly affects the leg veins or deep veins of the pelvis. It can reverse flow of the blood to the heart and lung. Many people die due to DVT. This disease is caused by several factors that include injury to the vein, slow flow of blood due to its character of clotting. It may be developed during activity or may be inherited by birth. There are some very common symptoms of deep venous thrombosis, such as leg pain, swelling, leg warmth, tenderness of leg tissue and the redness of skin. Some other symptoms can be seen as varicose veins, redness in the affected limb, skin infection and muscle strain. The long time sitting or lying on the bed can incur such symptoms.
The effect of the DVC can be detected with the help of X-ray, plethysmography, Doppler scan and blood tests. Deep venous thrombosis symptoms need to be cured effectively; in this regard the advanced endovascular technologies have led some noninvasive treatments. The use of heparin is very effective to stop blood clotting. It helps to increase the anticoagulation property of the blood. The oral medication called warfatrin can also be performed. The radiological treatments include catheter-directed thrombolytic infusion, mechanical fragmentation or ultrasound energy and rheolytic thrombectomy are being used to remove the intraluminal thrombus.
