Is there an Ayurvedic treatment for dvt?

Not one you want: Dvt is a serious medical issue. If you want to treat allergies or something with homeopathy - fine. Dvt needs anticoagulants, surveillance and compression stockings. Don't get cute.

What is the treatment of dvt?

What is the treatment of dvt?

Anticoagulation: The primary treatment is anticoagulation. This usually begins with a short acting medication like Heparin that is given iv. Sometimes patients are given a version of this in subcutaneous formulation. Coumadin (warfarin) which is an oral anticoagulant is then started and this will continue for either three or six months depending upon the circumstances surrounding the dvt.

Can DVT present without any complications after one week, will the swelling subside without any treatment?

Can DVT present without any complications after one week, will the swelling subside without any treatment?

Yes and possibly: A DVT can be present for some time with minimal symptoms and no complications such as pulmonary embolism (blood clot in lungs), but will not usually resolve completely without treatment. If you suspect you may have a DVT, you should see a physician/provider, since complications can be life-threatening.

What is the prognosis and best treatment of DVT with pe?

What is the prognosis and best treatment of DVT with pe?

Prognosis varies: The patients prognosis varies by how ill they are and why they have the blood clots in the first place. Patients with cancer who wind up on a ventilator and in shock do poorly, while those that don't even need oxygen and got it from travel or trauma do well. Treatment also varies: for those in shock tpa is indicated, for those with a malignant cause lovenox, and Coumadin (warfarin) for the rest.

I'm suffering swelling on my left leg, it started with DVT, DVT is cleared but swelling remains for past 7 years, is there any treatment I can do?

Compression socks: You can try some compression stockings. Also a massage therapist that specializes in lymphedema treatment may be helpful. If there is any chance of recurrent DVT see your doctor right away.

I have been taking treatment for DVT more than 10 years. Acitrom& preem16 are the drugs taking regularly. Will it affect my sex life? Can I gve birth?

No, yes: Acitrom is an anticoagulant similar to warfarin. You are taking because you had a blood clot at a very early age. It is unusual to have a DVT at 17 and it could be related to a genetic reason that you clot more than other people. Only you and your doctor know if you have a clotting problem that needs lifelong anticoagulation, it is possible. You might stop the drug prior to delivery if pregnant.

What is the treatment for blood clots in the legs (dvt)?

What is the treatment for blood clots in the legs (dvt)?

Blood thinners: The mainstay of treatment is always blood thinners and there are many of these with more coming out all the time. Often the clot is left alone while the body dissolves it. Sometimes when the clot is very high up and extends above the top of the leg, the clot might be removed mechanically with a clot dissolver. Once that is done, a person still needs to be on blood thinners though.

My husband is hospitalized for dvt. Should he ask for inferior vena cava filter even if he doesn't undergo tpa (alteplase) treatment? (unsure when clot formed.)

My husband is hospitalized for dvt. Should he ask for inferior vena cava filter even if he doesn't undergo tpa (alteplase) treatment? (unsure when clot formed.)

No: The indication for ivc filter placement in a patient with an acute DVT is usually related to a contraindication of the patient to be anticoagulated. If your husband can be anticoagulated then ther is no reason for him to have a filter.

Pancreatic cancer treatment and thinner for dvt. Now cough with bloody phlegm. Oncologist is aware, but didn't alter treatment. Is this an emergency?

Pancreatic cancer treatment and thinner for dvt. Now cough with bloody phlegm. Oncologist is aware, but didn't alter treatment. Is this an emergency?

It depends: When you take a blood thinner (which one are you taking?? /), the doctors monitor the degree of effect on your blood. These tests guide us as to when to make dose adjustment to fine tune the blood thing to a safe yet effective level. Most likely your blood containing phlegm will clear up itself. But if it gets worse then you will need to get your blood checked even if it means going to ER (Emergency

I'm 38 years old had past DVT 8 yrs ago via c section, if I wanted another baby is it safe or am I high risk of DVT even with treatment?

I'm 38 years old had past DVT 8 yrs ago via c section, if I wanted another baby is it safe or am I high risk of DVT even with treatment?

Yes high risk: You would be at significant risk of having another thromboembolism. The risk increases with age. If your heart is set on another baby you should seek a consultation with a hematologist and/or a perinatalogist before getting pregnant. You would very likely need to be on anticoagulant therapy throughout the pregnancy and post partum period. With this approach you should do ok.

I asked if I have CAPS-diagnosed APL @age 16I'm on warfarin treatment I've had stroke at 16PE Seizures dvt, murmurall later in life is it primary apls?

I asked if I have CAPS-diagnosed APL @age 16I'm on warfarin treatment I've had stroke at 16PE Seizures dvt, murmurall later in life is it primary apls?

CAPS: Is a critical illness which your doctor can diagnose and treat with medication and if unsuccessful can consider plasmapheresis and or IVIG. I doubt you have CAPS at this point because you would most likely be in an ICU. You could have antipgospholipid syndrome as a primary process or as a consequence of changes resulting from cancer but I am assuming your APL is is remission so may be primary.

After having a DVT can symptoms linger even on treatment. Have had 2 ultrasounds both clear but still experiencing calf pain and foot numbness?

Yes: DVT pains can linger and at times, a medication to be taken as needed can provide some relief that is compatible with your medications you are already taking. Best wishes.

If you're diagnosed with dvt, blood clot what is the treatment? Does it stay forever or can it be fixed? Going for ultrasound in two days because leg pain

DVT: The treatment is anticoagulants like heparin/coumadin. If there is contraindications to anti coagulation, or if it is ineffective, sometimes an inferior vena cava filter is necessary. With treatment the clot may resolve completely.

Mom fell caused brain bleed 2+ months ago. Now has DVT distal peroneal. Treatment options? Blood thinners cause more brain bleeding? Mom is 79 yrs

IVC filter? I don't: Know if ur mom is prone to falling & brain bleeds; if so, anticoagulants (blood thinners) r not a good idea - it increases the risk of a fatal brain bleed shd she fall again in the future. A better option may be an IVC filter (Greenfield filter) which will trap DVTs & keep it from getting to the lungs; however it tends to cause swelling in the legs (side effect may be wrse than cure).

Mum had DVT followed by a stenotic vein and swollen leg and foot now she has thrombophlebitis is there a lifelong treatment?

Mum had DVT followed by a stenotic vein and swollen leg and foot now she has thrombophlebitis is there a lifelong treatment?

Best to: Check to see if her blood is too thick - hypercoagulable. Need to remove or dissolve current clot. The underlying narrowing then can be treated - possibly a stent. She may need Coumadin (warfarin) or Xeralto for a lifetime. Once clot gone use compression hose for leg swelling. Elevate her legs when possible.
