Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot in a blood vessel. Blood clots usually occur in the leg vessels, but can also occur elsewhere in the body, for example in the arms. The most common cause of a blood clot is immobility. A complication can occur when a part of the blood clot breaks down and travels to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). This is usually prevented if you are given an anticoagulant treatment. A DVT is a blood clot that forms in a deep leg vein. Veins are blood vessels that bring blood to the heart. Deep veins in the legs are the larger veins that pass through the muscles of the calf and thighs. It is therefore not the veins that are visible just under the skin, or the varicose veins. When you have a DVT, the blood flow in the vein is completely or partially blocked by the blood clot.
Most people who develop a DVT are advised to wear support stockings, or blood clot socks. This treatment has been shown to greatly reduce the risk of recurrent DVT and may also reduce the risk of post-thrombotic syndrome. You must wear the blood clot socks every day for at least two years. If a post-thrombotic syndrome develops, it may be advisable to wear the stockings for more than two years. Note: after a DVT you first have to consult with your doctor which support stocking is best for you. If you are advised to wear DVT compression stockings, you should wear them immediately after getting up until you go to bed. The pressure of the stocking helps to prevent moisture from seeping into the calf tissues from the outer veins that carry the extra diverted blood after a DVT. The stocking reduces or prevents the calf from swelling. This reduces a lot of inconveniences and reduces the risk of skin ulcers.
Basically it comes down to this: because of gravity, blood and fluid flow to the feet the body needs all the help it can get to let it flow upwards again. The highest pressure (compression) is at the ankle and gradually decreases until it finally performs the least pressure just under the knee, causing blood to be "pushed" back up. In this way, an optimal blood circulation is achieved which prevents leg fatigue, muscle pain and swelling.
