Thrombophlebitis

Overview

Thrombophlebitis is a medical condition that results in the formation of a blood clot that blocks one or more than one vein in the legs. The vein that is affected could be either near to the skin (superficial thrombophlebitis) or deep-seated (Deep vein thrombosis). Deep vein thrombosis increases the risk of health problems. Superficial thrombophlebitis does not pose any threat. However, deep vein thrombosis leads to serious complications such as post-phlebitic syndrome, pulmonary embolism.

Various factors contribute to the risk of thrombophlebitis such as a prolonged period of inactivity due to the accident; the presence of varicose veins which contribute to the development of superficial thrombophlebitis; after giving birth, having a blood-clotting disorder family history, who had an earlier episode of thrombophlebitis etc.

Thrombophlebitis Symptoms

The symptoms and signs of superficial thrombophlebitis are as follows:

  • Pain, warmth, and tenderness
  • Swelling and redness

The signs and symptoms of deep vein thrombosis are as follows:

  • Swelling
  • Pain

Thrombophlebitis Causes

The primary cause of thrombophlebitis is a ‘blood clot’ that can form in the blood due to the following:

  • Injury to the vein
  • Inherited ‘blood clotting’ disorder
  • Immobility for extended periods like during hospital stay or injury

Pulmonary Embolism and Thrombophlebitis

If a portion of a ‘deep vein’ clot gets dislodged, it travels to the lungs and blocks an artery and results in pulmonary embolism, which is a life-threatening situation.

Diagnosis of Thrombophlebitis

At mfine, contact thrombophlebitis specialist who can offer the right treatment. To distinguish between deep vein thrombosis and superficial thrombophlebitis the general surgeon or a pediatrician would suggest many tests such as ultrasound, blood tests etc.

Understanding Thrombophlebitis

In thrombophlebitis, one or more veins are blocked in the leg due to the formation of blood clot. Some individuals are prone to develop the disorder like people more than 60 years of age, those taking birth control pills, undergoing hormone replacement therapy, had a stroke or a smokers etc.

Thrombophlebitis Treatment

At mfine, find adept general surgeons, who would suggest application of heat to a painful area while raising the patient’s affected leg and using an NSAID or painkiller and wearing the compression stockings. The condition improves all by itself. The various types of treatment the general surgeon or a pediatrician suggests are blood thinning medications, compression stockings, filter, varicose vein stripping and clot-dissolving medications.

Through mfine come across thrombophlebitis doctors near me and get high-quality treatment.
