World Thrombosis Day, October 13, 2017

Thrombosis is abnormal, life-threatening blood clots that form in the artery or vein. A clot in a leg or pelvic vein is known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT ) and a clot that breaks off and travels to the lungs is known as a pulmonary embolism (PE ). Together, DVT and PE make up venous thromboembolic (VTE ) disease.
