How is a deep vein thrombosis treated?
If deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is found, the treatment goals include stopping the clot from growing and preventing any new blood clots from forming. DVT may be treated by anticoagulation drugs, which prevent formation of new blood clots or thrombolytic agents, which dissolve formed blood clots.
