Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that develops within a deep vein in the body, usually in the leg. This is a serious condition if a piece of blood clot breaks off into the bloodstream and blocks one of the blood vessels in the lungs (see below). DVT and pulmonary embolism together are known as venous thromboembolism (VTE).
