Treating Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a condition that occurs when a blood clot, or thrombus, becomes lodged in a vein in the leg. This most often occurs with the femoral or popliteal veins, or the clot can develop in the veins in the pelvis. This blood clot can cause different symptoms depending on the particular case, but most often it will become swollen and painful in the affected area.

The oral contraceptive drugs Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella may be responsible for causing a woman to develop deep vein thrombosis. If you have suffered because of these medications, contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for more information concerning your legal options

Treatment Options for Deep Vein Thrombosis

DVT can prove fatal if the blood clot breaks out of the leg and works through the circulatory system into the lungs or brain. As a result, treatment for these blood clots needs to be administered quickly, and it must effectively destroy the clot. These treatments include the following measures:

  • Anticoagulant medications
  • Thrombolytic drugs
  • Thrombectomy, or physical removal of the blood clot
  • Compression stockings

These treatment measures can effectively get rid of the blood clot and restore blood flow through the affected vein. However, these treatments can prove expensive, as hospitalization is often required.
