  • Interventional Radiology for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

    DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in the deep veins of the leg. Should a clot break free, it potentially can travel to the lung, heightening the risk of pulmonary embolism. DVT can also cause post-thrombotic syndrome, characterized by chronic leg pain, swelling, ulcers and cramping.

    While not every patient with DVT is a candidate for these treatments, options offered by Interventional Radiologists at St. Anthony North Health Campus include:

    • Lysis therapy, where clot-dissolving drugs are delivered via catheter directly to the clot.
    • Interior vena cava (IVC) filter placement, where a small metal filter is inserted to prevent clots from traveling to the lungs while permitting blood to flow around it.
