DVT clots most often<br /> develop in the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis; in some instances, they<br /> can also occur in the arm. A Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)<br /> occurs when a DVT breaks free and becomes a Pulmonary<br /> Embolism (PE).<br /> • 1/3 of people (33%) with DVT/PE will have<br /> a recurrence within 10 years.1<br /> • As many as 900,000 people are affected<br /> (>1 per 1,000) each year in the United States.1<br /> DVT is often undiagnosed and can lead to serious illness, disability,<br /> and in some cases, death. That’s why it is important to be aware of<br /> risks and prevention.<br /> The good news is that DVT is preventable and treatable if<br /> discovered early.<br /> 1. https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/dvt/data.html<br /> SYMPTOMS OF DVT<br /> DVT (DEEP VEIN THROMBOS<a title="DJO DVT Patient Support Guide page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/955cc138?page=1"> Support Guide MANAGING DVT</a> <a title="DJO DVT Patient Support Guide page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/955cc138?page=2"> WHAT IS DVT?
