Thrombosis is the development of a mass of clumped blood (blood clot) in a blood vessel. It can restrict blood flow and cause a life-threatening stroke, heart attack, or blockage of blood to the lungs.


Signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the blood clot.


Treatments include compression stockings, medications, or a clot-catching filter inserted into a blood vessel.
