Travel thrombosis: What are the consequences?
At first glance, the formation of a blood clot may not sound particularly dangerous. But that is a big mistake. Even a small thrombus can bring life-threatening effects or permanent damage to health (especially if the thrombus detaches from the vein and clogs vessels). Diseases that can be brought about by thrombosis are:
- Pulmonary embolisms
- Heart attacks
- Leg vein occlusions
- Posttrombotic syndromes (PTS) - this is permanent damage to a vein.
- Venous inflammation
