In brief: THROMBOLYTIC RX.

Thrombolytic threrapy is a method of dissolving clots in veins.
It does not increase or decrease the size of veins. If successful, the clot in the vein will disappear and more blood will flow through the vein. There are several types of thrombolytic therapy including chemical, mechanical and a combination of both.

In brief: Probably

Thrombosis of veins results in an inflammatory response (phlebitis), and this will result in alteration of the vein wall with remodeling and this can result in shrinkage or dilation of the wall.
The remaining thrombus present will result in web-like scarring within the vein narrowing the lumen and reducing the diameter.
