A DVT is a Thrombosis that happens in the deep veins of the legs. DVT may also damage the valves in the legs, which will prevent the blood from properly flowing back into the circulatory system, and can cause permanent blockage of the blood flow in a vein.
The Doctors at the Center for Venous Disease are first and foremost concerned with your health and well-being. This is why, during your first ultrasound, your Doctor and Sonographer will look for and rule out a blood clot in your deep venous system and superficial venous system. If a Deep Vein Thrombosis is found during the ultrasound you will immediately be sent to the Emergency Room because a DVT can be a very serious thing. But don’t panic or make yourself sick with worry, the chance of having a blood clot is very rare. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be proactive though. Make it a point to get a yearly screening.
Also, after each procedure, you will be required to return to the office for a post-procedure DVT scan which is part of FDA protocol. At CVD, we will do our best to monitor your treatment progression and manage any complications that might arise along the way. Ruling out a blood clot before, during, and after your procedures is a very important part of your treatment plan.
