The primary objective of deep vein thrombosis-DVT treatment is the prevention of the enlargement of a blood clot and to prevent them from travelling to the lungs as it may cause pulmonary embolism. Proper treatment is also meant for preventing the post-thrombotic syndrome which may cause throbbing pain, sore log and swelling. Cardiologists normally treat the blood clot in the leg by administering the anticoagulants which can effectively reduce the condition. These coagulants work by increasing the time it takes to form clotting and by preventing the present clots from becoming larger. Your cardiologist may recommend you to take the anticoagulants for about 3 months. The duration of dosage would vary according to your health condition, the area where the blood clot in the leg has taken place as well as the risk of pulmonary embolism. Other treatment options to treat the symptoms of blood clot in leg include vena cava filters or thrombolytic medications. These treatments are not generally opted and are generally given to those patients who are at a higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis symptoms. Though most pain and aches at different areas in your body may not be a sign for something acute, certain discomforts can be regarded as signs of a blood clot. You should not ignore the pain and swelling of the legs, especially in your calf muscles, an excruciating pain in the affected region and redness at the back of your knee. You may also notice that the skin behind your knee has become warm which may become worse when you bend the foot upwards.
