Bunker Vein & Imaging Center - DVT Awareness Month
Deep-vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a common vein condition which can sometimes be difficult to spot, and without the proper treatment can lead to fatal complications. Each March, we're committed to raising awareness about DVT and making sure you know how to recognize the signs and symptoms.
While spider veins and varicose veins tend to have clear, apparent, visual symptoms, DVT can sometimes be lurking below the surface without any obvious signs. This is because DVT occurs in deep veins rather than superficial veins, often surrounded by muscle tissue and hidden from the eye.
DVT is the formation of a blood clot, or thrombus, in the deep veins most often in the legs, which interrupts normal blood flow and circulation.
