  • Venous embolism

    Venous embolism is the condition where a venous clot travels from one location to another. Most commonly this happens when a deep venous thrombosis (clot) develops in the larger veins of the leg and breaks off and travels to the lungs (clot is now called a pulmonary embolism). Causes of venous thrombosis include recent surgical procedure, spinal cord injury or other reason for immobility, fracture of hip or leg or other trauma, cancers, heart failure, stroke, obesity, and inherited risk factors like gene mutations causing blood to clot more easily.
