Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot within a deep vein, typically in the thigh or calf. Patients undergoing orthopedic surgery are at high risk for DVT after their procedure due to inactivity or prolonged bed rest. If a blood clot breaks free, it can travel through the bloodstream and reach the lungs. This is a serious medical emergency called a pulmonary embolism, which can block blood flow from the lungs and heart, a potentially fatal risk factor. Your doctor will likely prescribe a program to help prevent DVT after your surgery, including medication and/or a compression device like portable DVT pump. These devices are able to help promote blood flow back to the heart and prevent blood pooling.
Venous thromboembolism, defined as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or both, affects an estimated 300,000-600,000 individuals in the U.S. each year
