Phlebitis And Thrombophlebitis Of Other Deep Vessels Of Unspecified Lower Extremity

What Is Phlebitis And How Can You Treat It?

About

Phlebitis is defined as the inflammation caused in the walls of a person’s blood carrying veins.

Phlebitis affects about 27-70% of all patients receiving intravenous therapy. [1]

-Medical diagnosis is required
-Lab tests or imaging are required
-It is short-term and it usually resolves within a few days to a few weeks
-Can be medically treated

Deep phlebitis is the inflammation of a deeper, larger vein, like the ones found in your legs. Deep phlebitis is more likely to be caused by a blood clot and may have very serious, life-threatening consequences.

Symptoms

Only about 50% of people with phlebitis experience symptoms. These symptoms include:
- redness
- swelling
- warmth
- visible red streaks on your leg
- tenderness
- rope- or cord-like structure which can be felt through the skin
- Noticeable pain while walking or flexing
Severe phlebitis may lead to Pulmonary Embolism.

Treatment

Self-care: Using warm compresses can provide temporary respite, however, one should seek immediate medical attention.

Medication: Treatment involves removal of intravenous catheter and antibiotics if an infection is detected. Following methods are generally used:
- Anticoagulants help the blood from clotting.
- Surgical intervention includes thrombectomy, which may involve removing the clot or dissolving it with tissue plasminogen activators, or a combination of both.
- Insertion of a filter may be recommended for severe cases.

Specialists: Phlebitis can be managed through effective medical intervention, however, if it is not done on a timely basis then it can lead to severe life-threatening conditions. At mfine, we provide a holistic approach to overall health and well being. Feel free to contact us in case of any medical issues or symptoms.
