Treatment Options

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot within a deep vein – usually within the leg, thigh or pelvis. DVT can lead to swelling, pain, difficulty ambulating or feelings of tightness or heaviness in the affected area, as well as potentially severe complications like pulmonary embolism or postphlebitic syndrome. Fortunately, at The California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis, our expert medical team is fully-equipped to provide state-of-the-art DVT treatment options.

Often considered the standard DVT and blood clot treatment, anticoagulation prevents clots from propagation and decreasing the chance of complications like potentially fatal pulmonary embolism. Anticoagulation does not dissolve a clot completely, but instead lessens the chance of clot propagation.

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter

A metallic filter that is placed in the vena cava to prevent blood clot to travel from the lower extremities to the heart. An IVC filter is often used when there is a contraindication to anticoagulation or in conjunction to mechanical thrombectomy.
