In brief: Multiple.

There are many causes for DVT but all causes revolve around 3 factors: stasis of blood, injury to the vessel wall or increased propensity to clot(hypercoagulabe state).
Stasis occurs with long trips or immobility due to illness or casts. Injuries to the vein wall can occur with trauma from something within the vein or external to it .Hypercoagulable- increased risk of clotting -genetic/acquired.
