Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot forms in deep veins in the legs or other areas of the body. DVT affects about 2 million people in the United States each year. Although anyone can develop DVT, women who have had major surgery, who have had trauma, or who are pregnant are at higher risk.
