No: Typically not related. The DVT has to do with a hypercoagulable state into which you were born. The venous angioma is another condition your were born with. They seem to be unrelated.

Vein: Possible you have congenital problem with veins.
Dr. Bennett Machanic
Neurology 52 years experience
Consider this: The venous angioma may well be congenital, unless was shown never present previously. However, be certain that you do not possess what is termed antiphospholipid antibody syndrome as an explanation for your issues.
