Lower limb deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which fresh thrombus (blood clot) forms in the deep veins of the legs and pelvis. Besides causing local symptoms including calf pain, swelling and oedema, thrombus in the lower limb veins is also a source of emboli that may lead to life-threatening pulmonary embolism (PE).
