Blood Clots

Also called: Hypercoagulability

Normally, if you get hurt, your body forms a blood clot to stop the bleeding. Some people get too many clots or their blood clots abnormally. Many conditions can cause the blood to clot too much or prevent blood clots from dissolving properly.

Risk factors for excessive blood clotting include

  • Certain genetic disorders
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Diabetes
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Overweight, obesity, and metabolic syndrome
  • Some medicines
  • Smoking
Blood clots can form in, or travel to, the blood vessels in the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and limbs. A clot in the veins deep in the limbs is called deep vein thrombosis (DVT). DVT usually affects the deep veins of the legs. If a blood clot in a deep vein breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs and blocks blood flow, the condition is called pulmonary embolism. Other complications of blood clots include stroke, heart attack, kidney problems and kidney failure, and pregnancy-related problems.Treatments for blood clots include blood thinners and other medicines.

  • Antithrombin III blood test
  • Arterial embolism
  • Blood clots
  • Cavernous sinus thrombosis
  • Congenital antithrombin III deficiency
  • Congenital protein C or S deficiency
  • D-dimer test
  • Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)
  • Fibrin degradation products
  • Fibrinogen
  • Fibrinopeptide A blood test
  • Partial thromboplastin time (PTT)
  • Protein C
  • Protein S
  • Prothrombin time (PT)
  • Renal vein thrombosis
  • Superficial thrombophlebitis
  • Thrombophlebitis
