bloodclotsThe Thrombosis Service is a group of health professionals including doctors, pharmacists, nurses and support staff who specialize in blood-clotting problems. We work to provide the best possible care and education to patients with, or at risk for blood clots. In doing this, we assist University of Utah Health Care (UUHC) providers with consultation and referral services for prevention and treatment of blood clots.

Thrombosis

Thrombosis is when the body forms a blood clot inside a blood vessel. A blood clot in a blood vessel is also called a thrombus. A thrombus can stop blood flow to parts of the body. Thrombosis can cause the following:

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)  - a blood clot in a deep vein, most often in the leg

Pulmonary Embolus (PE)  - a blood clot in the lung

Stroke – a blood clot in the brain
