In brief: No differently

The use of blood thinners is usually required when treated a dvt, and having high blood pressure shouldn't affect this, especially if the high blood pressure is under control!

In brief: Treat both

Hypertension should not alter the treatment plan for dvt.
Systemic anticoagulation for 3-6 months is a minimum recomendation, and dont forget the compression stockings to prevent post-phlebitic syndrome.
