Deep Vein Thrombosis Surgical Treatment
The formation of a thrombus, or a blood clot, is caused by deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the deep leg vein. Catheter-directed thrombolysis is done by interventional radiologist through guided imagining.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) - An Overview
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs due to the formation of blood clots (or Thrombus) in the deep veins of the limbs or extremities (arms and legs). Blood clots usually develop in the veins when the blood thickens and forms a clump.
Prolonging DVT treatment can cause life-threatening medical complications such as Pulmonary Embolism. In pulmonary embolism, blood clots from the impacted deep veins in the legs break free and travel upwards in the body, and, can block a pulmonary artery in the lungs. This impacts the blood flow to the lungs. Pulmonary embolism if not diagnosed in time, can even prove fatal.
Therefore, it is important to seek optimum Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment, at the earliest, at The Vascular centre at various location in Maharashtra.
Some other names of DVT are:
Blood clot in the leg

Family history of DVT
Warm red skin
Cramping or throbbing pain in thigh or calf

The Doctor first asks about the symptoms, then, conducts a physical examination to check the impacted area. The further tests that the doctor may recommend for effective diagnosis include:
Duplex Ultrasound or USG Doppler
MR Venography or CT Venography
After an effective diagnosis, the doctor recommends the appropriate Deep Vein Thrombosis treatment in Navi Mumbai at The Vascular Centre.
The most life-threatening complication of prolonging acute Deep Vein Thrombosis treatment in Nagpur is Pulmonary Embolism.
Pulmonary embolism is defined as a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs. This occurs when the blood clots in the veins travel into the lungs from the deep veins in the legs impacted by Deep Vein Thrombosis.
These blood clots can block the blood flow into the lungs causing a life-threatening condition.
The main symptoms include:
Shortness of breath
Irregular or rapid heartbeat, among others.
The best way to avoid this complication is to undergo DVT treatment in Aurangabad at The Vascular Centre. Early treatment and intervention for Deep Vein Thrombosis treatment in pune if needed will prevent future post thrombotic syndrome, varicose vein and leg pain swelling. Also chronic DVT causes venous stasis ulcer -wound which is then difficult to treat and live with. So consult early at out Mumbai center for DVT.
Post-thrombotic syndrome is a condition that usually happens to people who had deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the past. The condition causes swelling, chronic pain, and different symptoms in the leg. It mainly develops in months after a DVT when not properly treated. Simple blood thinner will not prevent long term complications associated with DVT, so to prevent this consult our vascular surgeon in Aurangabad.
Post-thrombotic syndrome causes leg ulcers or sores. If you suffer from this condition, you will need to have wound care. Aspirin and a medicine called pentoxifylline may help aid ulcer healing. For DVT related ulcer treatment in pune, you may need antibiotics, compressive 4 layer dressing. Severe ulcers that don’t get better with medicines and wound care therapy may need surgery to remove the damaged tissue.

Blood Thinning Medication
Anti-coagulation or blood thinner medication with compression stockings is the standard Deep Vein Thrombosis treatment in Nagpur at The Vascular Centre.
This medication prevents the existing blood clots from becoming bigger in size and greatly reduces the risk of developing more such clots. Blood thinner medications can be administered orally or via IV or an injection under the skin. Heparin is commonly administered through IV.
The commonly used injectable blood thinners for DVT treatment in Navi Mumbai at The Vascular Centre are fondaparinux (Arixtra) and enoxaparin (Lovenox).
Catheter Directed Thrombolysis
Catheter-directed thrombolysis is a minimally invasive DVT treatment that dissolves abnormal blood clots in the veins or blood vessels to help improve blood flow and prevent damage to organs and tissues.
For best DVT treatment in Aurangabad,a catheter-directed thrombolysis treatment procedure, x-ray imaging is used to guide a special medical device or medication to the site of blood clots to dissolve the clots and remove the blockage.
Acute DVT (occurring within 14 days) is best managed endovascular treatment. Firstly, the IVC filter is placed to prevent pulmonary thrombo-embolism. Then, through a catheter, blood clots are aspirated and medication (thrombolytic to dissolve the formed blood clot) is injected locally through a catheter to dissolve the clots. This entire procedure is done through a small hole and involves no cuts/sutures. So consult and visit your nearest the vascular center for detail knowledge and consultation.
The patient is, in fact, mobile from the next day itself after undergoing DVT treatment in Mumbai at The Vascular Centre.
