"My doctor says the only treatment available for my DVT is blood thinners. Are there additional options?"
Over 2 million Americans experience DVT each year.11
DVT and PE is associated with an estimated 100,000 deaths each year.12
DVT Intervention: You can now treat acute DVT by dissolving the blood clot.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a blood disorder resulting from the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) inside a deep vein of the leg, commonly located in the calf or thigh. DVT occurs when the blood clot either partially or completely blocks the flow of blood in the vein. Patient symptoms include pain, swelling, and discoloration.
For the past 60 years, the standard of care for DVT has been anticoagulation therapy, i.e., blood thinners.4 Blood thinners work well in reducing the chance of the blood clot growing and of the patient developing a fatal pulmonary embolism. However, many people incorrectly believe that blood thinners can fully dissolve a blood clot on their own.19
