In brief: DVT vs ischemia

Dvt is formation of clot in veins, which are responsible for returning blood back to the heart.
Claudication is pain associated with decreased blood flow to tissue, arising commonly from narrowing of the small arteries that deliver blood/oxygen from the heart. Both are related to blood vessels, one being a vein the other being an artery.
