In brief: Thrombolysis
Large DVT can be treated with chemicals to dissolve the clot.
Used in combination with suction type devices, most of the clot can be removed. There are limitation to using this medication known as tpa, (alteplase) and there is always risk of bleeding when using it. Surgery to remove vein clots is rarely done anymore.
