What Causes Deep Vein Thrombosis?

In simplest terms: Inactivity causes blood flow to slow in the deep veins of the lower legs...

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis can strike any long-distance traveler--regardless of physical condition, age, or gender.
  • DVT is not just confined to those flying economy class. First-class passengers are also at risk, as are long-distance auto and rail travelers, and anyone who is immobile for a long period of time, traveling or not..


  • What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

    Deep Vein Thrombosis is a blood clot (thrombosis) that forms in the deep vein system of the lower leg--usually between the ankle and the upper calf. The condition is serious, potentially fatal, and very difficult to diagnose by external examination.

    Symptoms, if they occur, might include muscle tension in the lower leg, a dull ache or sudden painful tear, or a cramp in the calf with swelling and elevated body temperature. Symptoms rarely occur, though, since the clot formation may develop very rapidly, detach from the wall of the vein and move through the blood stream before anyone recognizes what's happening.

    The clot may travel through the veins and lodge in the heart or more likely in the lungs, resulting in sudden death. If the clot remains lodged in the legs, very serious damage may occur to the vein, or even to the leg's entire venous system. Clots can cause tissue damage, skin lesions, ulceration, and possibly removal of the limb.

    Graduated compression stockings and socks have been prescribed by physicians for over fifty years to treat venous maladies such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, Varicose Veins, Phlebitis, Edema, etc. These stockings are designed to exert maximum compression at the ankle with pressure gradually decreasing up the length of the hosiery. This action forces surface veins' blood into the legs' deep vein system thereby correcting improper, weak blood flow. Graduated compression products are available in all men's and women's styles and they look and feel like regular hosiery and socks.

    If you're looking for high quality, medically correct, graduated support socks to wear on your travels, you've come to the right place. Ames Walker supplies the largest variety of support hosiery and socks on the internet, and is one of the largest value priced support hosiery brands in America.
