In brief: Clot in veins

(DVT) or deep vein thrombosis is identified as a blood clot in the deep vein system. Usually in the lower extremities of the body.
It basically means that blood has thickened and clumped together. A blood clot can break apart and travel through the blood stream ending up in the lungs causing a (pe) or pulmonary embolism. It is a very serious condition that should be treated immediately.
