The Dangers of Renal Vein Thrombosis
Thrombosis is a serious medical condition which can occur when a blood clot forms inside a blood vessel, which can cause a dangerous obstruction to the flow of blood to the body. While blood clotting is an important part of the body’s defense system, if an unnecessary clot is formed, or a clot breaks away from where it is supposed to be, it can cause serious damage.

Renal Vein Thrombosis
As its name suggests, renal vein thrombosis is a type of thrombosis that affects the renal vein. The renal vein is one of the most important blood vessels in the body, because it supplies blood to the kidneys, the body’s cleansing system. This can lead to:
Imbalance in the clotting blood factor
Kidney drainage problems
Because renal vein thrombosis can seriously affect the kidneys’ ability to drain efficiently, it can pose a serious health risk. Surgery can be possible in some cases, but is seldom performed. Most cases are treated through anticoagulation therapy.
