Deep vein thrombosis is a vascular condition that occurs when a large blood clot is trapped in one of the major veins in your leg. It blocks blood from circulating properly through your legs, and can cause a pulmonary embolism if it leaves your legs and enters your lungs. Deep vein thrombosis can be caused by a damaged blood vessel, abnormalities in healthy blood flow patterns and a condition called hypercoagulability (when blood clots faster than normal).
You can be particularly susceptible to deep vein thrombosis if you sit for long periods of time (like at work or on an airplane), have extended bed rest, have recently undergone surgery, are obese, have had a heart attack or have recently given birth.
