Description: Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) is a type of clot that forms in a major vein of the leg or, less commonly, in the arms, pelvis, or other large veins in the body. This video shows how in some cases, a clot in a vein may detach from its point of origin and travel through the heart to the lungs where it becomes wedged, preventing adequate blood flow. This is called a pulmonary (lung) embolism and can be extremely dangerous. To learn more about DVT and other blood disorders, visit ASH's patient resources webpage http://hematology.org/Patie....
