Arizona Medical Malpractice Lawyers for the Victims of Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis is the name given to blood clots which usually form in the deep veins of the legs. Clots may form for a number of reasons including recent surgery, cancer, or a long period of immobility, such as an international plane flight or illness.
Medical Negligence Resulting from a Failure to Diagnose or Treat Dangerous Blood Clots Can Be Fatal
Health care providers need to understand how to protect against, diagnose and treat deep vein thrombosis because it presents a life-threatening risk. A clot in a deep vein can break off and travel through the venous system to the lungs, becoming what is called a pulmonary embolism. There the clot blocks the flow of blood to the lungs, affecting a person’s ability to oxygenate blood. Large clots, or the presence of many small ones can cause death.
