What is VTE?

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a condition in which a blood clot forms most often in the deep veins of the leg, groin or arm (deep vein thrombosis) and travels in the circulation, lodging in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). Together, DVT and PE are known as VTE - a dangerous, potentially deadly medical condition.


VTE Risk Factors

Being in a hospital can increase your risk of developing VTE.
Hospital-associated VTE consists up to 60 percent of all VTEs annually. Others include cancer-associated thrombosis and gender-specific risks.
