Yes: A clot in the veins below the knee is small. These veins are small. Early detection, diagnosis and treatment of this small clot worked nicely in your case. Congratulate your team and yourself.

Sural vein clot.: The sural veins are very small veins and clots in these veins are very small. Often times the treatment of these veins may simply be anti inflammatory meds and not blood thinners. It is not uncommon that these small clots may resolve over 2 weeks.
