Symptoms of DVT Include:
  • Swelling in the affected leg (rarely in both legs).

  • Red or discolored skin on the leg.
  • Warm and heavy sensation in the affected limb.
Diagnosis at One Stop Vascular Solutions:

To diagnose DVT, our medical professionals consider your symptoms and conduct a physical examination. Based on the risk assessment, they may recommend the following tests:

  • D-dimer Blood Test: Measures the quantity of D-dimer, a protein produced by blood clots.
  • Ultrasound Duplex: Utilizes sound waves to create images of blood flow through veins, serving as a gold standard for DVT detection.
  • Venography: Involves injecting dye followed by an X-ray to visualize veins.
Treatment Options:
  • Blood Thinners (Anticoagulants): Commonly prescribed to prevent clot enlargement and further risks. Heparin, Enoxaparin, Fondaparinux, Warfarin, Dabigatran, Rivaroxaban, Apixaban, and Edoxaban are various options.
  • Clot Busters (Thrombolytics): Administered through IV or a catheter directly into the clot for more severe cases.
  • Filters: Placed in the vena cava to prevent clots from reaching the lungs, suitable for those unable to take blood thinners or has complications because of blood thinners.
  • Compression Stockings: Special socks to prevent blood pooling and clotting, are recommended for at least two years.
