Thrombosis is a blood clot within a blood vessel. It happens when a blood clot forms and blocks a vein or an artery, obstructing or stopping the flow of blood.
A blood clot can occur anywhere in the body’s bloodstream.
There are two main types: venous thromboembolism (VTE), which is a blood clot that develops in a vein and arterial thrombosis (AT), which is a blood clot that develops in an artery
One of the most common types of venous thromboembolism is deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This is a blood clot in one of the deep veins of the body, usually one of the larger veins in your leg.
