Requires treatment: Deep vein thrombosis carries the risk of pulmonary embolism (blood clot to the lung) or chronic post-thrombotic symdrome (swelling, pain) if not treated. Depending on the size, length and duration of the clot treatment might include anticoagulant drugs or a catheter treatment to remove the clot. Depending on the location of the DVT a filter might be placed to prevent passage to lungs.
