Any condition where the blood is not moving, meaning the blood is stagnant and the flow is limited, can lead to clot formation. Patients that have certain conditions called hypercoagulable states are at higher risk for developing clots. Patients that have conditions where they’re limited in mobility and have bedridden status are higher risk for DVT. Patients that have had a recent surgery where they’re bedridden are at higher risk for DVT. People that fly long distance, that are not moving about on the plane, can get a DVT. So it’s really important to pay attention to these and to get checked out if you have a family history of DVT, or if you yourself suspect that you might have a DVT.
