Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a leg blood clot. It occurs when a blood clot is embedded in one of your major deep veins in your leg, and your blood is blocked. If you suffer from DVT, it can involve a sudden or acute pain and cause you to swell or experience warmth in the affected leg.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides us with important data on DVT.
You may be surprised to learn that many famous people have suffered from DVT. Athletes, politicians, and actors have suffered from the harmful condition. You can discover more detailed information about “Celebrities Who've Had Blood Clots” here.
