In brief: Like other DVT
Most of dvts occur with no known cause but with predisposing factors like stasis like in immobility, damage to lining of the vein like in cases of trauma or catheters in veins or hypercoagulable diseases.
It should be treated the same with anticoagulant like Coumadin (warfarin) for 6 months.
