Monday, November 26, 2012

 

In addition to inherited risk factors for deep vein clots, there are also acquired conditions that lead to DVT's (deep vein thrombosis).

 

This is a list of the 7 most common acquired causes for deep vein clot formaion:

 

  1. antiphospholipid syndrome
  2. anticardiolipin antibodies
  3. lupus antibodies
  4. hypehomocysteinemia
  5. activated protein C resistance
  6. malignancy (tumors)
  7. autoimmune disorders

 

Sometimes, the first clinical presentation of a deep vein clot is a malignancy that has hereto yet to be diagnosed. Patients are investigated and found to have a malignant tumor, such as breast cancer, lung cancer or colon cancer !
