VASCULAR SURGERY – EURODOCTOR.RU – 2007
In the arteries the blood enriched with oxygen flowing to other organs and tissues. Further, the blood, giving oxygen and nutrients to tissues takes the so-called "slag," and goes back through the veins to the heart. In the lower limbs, there are three types of veins. This surface, which are under the skin, deep veins that are deep in the muscles. These two types of veins are connected by perforating veins. They have valves that allow blood to flow in only one direction, namely from the superficial to deep veins. Deep leg veins empty into the widest vein in our body – the inferior vena cava, which in turn empties into the right atrium. In deep vein thrombosis of lower extremities in the lumen of the veins formed thrombus that breaks the flow of blood in the deep veins into the inferior vena. The most common forms in a vein thrombosis of the pelvis, femur, tibia, at least in the hands, chest or other areas.
In deep-vein thrombosis in the legs may occur swelling, pain and a feeling of warmth. The development of this disease is dangerous occurrence of such conditions as pulmonary embolism. In this condition, a blood clot, detached from the wall of the deep veins of legs rushing through the blood of the inferior vena cava enters the right heart and then out of it into the pulmonary artery. There's a blood clot gets stuck and breaks the flow. The manifestations of this condition depends on the number and caliber of blood clots blocked the pulmonary arteries. Usually, it manifests a sudden shortness of breath, sharp chest pain and hemoptysis. In severe cases, this condition can be fatal.
