Yes if corrected: The clot needs treated to prevent migration to lungs in the short term, but if the anatomic trigger/focus is corrected/removed, then yes, less concerning, as anticoagulation can likely be stopped as recurrence risk would go back to baseline for population, but tos surgery can be a major big deal.
