Vein Treatment and DVT

Almost 2 million Americans develop Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) each year. These blood clots can come loose and travel to the lungs with serious consequences. In fact, more people die each year from blood clots than breast cancer and HIV combined. Some risk factors include heart/respiratory failure, restricted mobility (long-distance travel), cancer, obesity, recent surgery, smoking, pregnancy, or inherited clotting disorders.

Clots can also form in superficial veins (SVT). This is also often called phlebitis. When this occurs in the leg, it will likely happen in a varicose vein where the blood is pooling instead of flowing up toward the heart. While clots in the superficial veins can “grow” into the deep veins causing a DVT, usually they are more of an annoyance than a danger.

Simply fill out the form on this page, and one of our highly trained staff members at Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute will reach out to your promptly to schedule your appointment.

While the number one motivation for eliminating varicose veins is to alleviate discomfort in the legs, patients who have had SVT in the past may choose to look into vein treatment options to prevent recurrence of SVT in the future
