About 900,000 people every year are detected with thrombosis, however, this can be a silent disease. Thrombosis occurs when a blood clot forms inside a blood vessel, altering its flow. At Soleil Surgical, we recommend our patients schedule a regular medical appointment in order to prevent these conditions, as well as more serious ones.
Knowing about these diseases is important to take care of your health and have a good quality of life. This condition is most common in legs, however, it can occur in any part of your body. Some symptoms are: swelling in your lower body, coughing up blood, leg redness or pain, rapid heart rate and shortness of breath.
There are several reasons why thrombosis can occur, among them:
