DVT stands for Deep Vein Thrombosis. Deep Veins are those deep inside the leg as opposed to Superficial Veins which are closer to the skin?s surface. A thrombus is a clot in the blood. Once a clot is formed, it may travel through the veins and reach the lungs. This can result in a fatal pulmonary embolism.
Clot formation is likely if the blood is stagnant. This happens in long surgeries (more than 30 minutes) where the patient is immobile for a long time.
Anti-embolism stockings provide a mechanical pumping action and assist in forcing the blood through the veins. This reduces the possibility of clot formation.
