Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment At pedes Orange County

If you have pain, redness, swelling, warmness, and/or enlarged veins near the surface of the skin, you may be experiencing symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and need to see a doctor as soon as possible. At Pedes Orange County, we provide a range of treatment options to address and treat your deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

How Is DVT Treated?

DVT is a life-threatening condition and must be addressed urgently. At our office, we will evaluate the degree of severity of your DVT and treat it accordingly. Treatment ultimately aims to stop the blood clot from getting larger or breaking off and traveling to your lungs. Treatment will also help to prevent the chances of developing additional blood clots.

Treatments

Medication

Anticoagulant medications or blood thinners are the most common medications for DVT treatment. Anticoagulants can keep a clot from growing or breaking off. They also prevent new clots from forming. Some of the more popular anticoagulants are dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, or edoxaban. Doctors recommend taking the drugs for six months.

Thrombectomy

Mechanical thrombectomy treats blood clots from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) using imaging to locate the clot. A local anesthetic numbs the area, and a catheter with a clot-removing device breaks up and removes the clot. An angioplasty, a balloon-like tool, restores blood flow, and a special tool vacuums the clot from the vein. Sometimes, a stent is inserted to keep the vessel open. This minimally invasive procedure takes about an hour and typically doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay.

Thrombectomy offers immediate relief, avoids major surgery, and reduces painful symptoms. It provides long-term health benefits, significantly lowering the risk of post-thrombotic syndrome and chronic complications that affect quality of life.

Thrombolysis

Thrombolysis is a medical treatment designed to dissolve dangerous blood clots in blood vessels, improve blood flow, and prevent damage to tissues and organs. It involves the administration of clot-dissolving medications, either through an intravenous (IV) line or directly at the site of the clot using a catheter. This treatment is commonly used in emergencies such as heart attacks, strokes, and deep vein thrombosis, aiming to quickly restore normal circulation and minimize long-term complications.

Deep Vein Thrombosis – Prevention

Deep vein thrombosis can lead to life-threatening health conditions. However, lifestyle changes can help you reduce these risks.

  • Regular Movement
  • Maintain a Healthy Weight
  • Stop Smoking 
  • Consistent Use of Compression Stockings
  • Anticoagulant Medication
