        • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
      • Definitions

        • DVT: Condition by which blood changes from liquid to solid state and produces blood clot (thrombus) within deep venous system, typically in lower limbs
        • Can also be seen in upper limbs (especially related to central venous catheters)
        • Pulmonary embolism (PE): Obstruction of pulmonary artery or one of its branches by embolic thrombus (ET), usually blood clot originating from thrombosis of leg veins
        • Venous thromboembolism (VTE): DVT and ET, related aspects of same disease process
