  1. Venous thrombosis

    A venous thrombosis or phlebothrombosis is a blood clot that forms within a vein. Thrombosis is a term for a blood clot occurring inside a blood vessel. A classical venous thrombosis is deep vein thrombosis, which can break off, and become a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. The disease process venous thromboembolism can refer to DVT and/or PE. An inflammatory reaction is usually present, mainly in the superficial veins and, for this reason this pathology is called most of the time thrombophlebitis. In fact, the inflammatory reaction and the white blood cells play a role in the resolution of venous clots.
