Thrombosis is a blood vessel disease, resulting from a clot (thrombus) in the veins or arteries. It can occur during pregnancy, after abdominal surgery, due to pneumonia, endothelial damage(Inner layer of the blood vessel wall), and after sitting for too long (e.g. during air travel), which represents a risk to healthy people.
Thrombosis Varicose Veins
Thrombophlebitis thrombosis, or superficial thrombophlebitis is an acute, local inflammation of the superficial veins and the surrounding connective tissue with the formation of a clot in the cavity surface veins, which leads to their complete or partial blockage.
It mostly occurs in varicose veins. In the case of surface thrombophlebitis, redness and induration appear, following the diseased vein, with a strong sense of pain. Rarely, there is a complication –a secondary infection coupled with a fever, a high sedimentation count, and a high number of leukocytes. Shin thrombophlebitis is treated with an elastic bandage placed before getting out of bed or an elastic stocking, with local application of heparin cream, with various linings. It’s recommended to walk everyday to prevent the occurrence of thrombosis in the deep veins.
