and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS (DVT) A blood clot that forms in a vein or an artery is called a “thrombus.” When a blood clot forms in a vein deep inside the body, it is called “deep vein thrombosis (DVT).” Deep vein thrombosis usually occurs in a vein in the leg, but it can also develop in the vein of an arm.
• Cerebral venous thrombosis –Venous sinus thrombosis –Cortical vein thrombosis • Relatively rare cause of stroke (<1%) • Annual incidence estimated 3 - 7 cases per million • Comparable incidence to acute bacterial meningitis in adults • More common among young women and children
The risk of stroke/thrombosis is greater with mechanical mitral valves (0.9%/year) than for mechanical aortic valves (0.5%/year), and the risk is 1.2%/year in those with two mechanical valves. Long-term anticoagulation reduces the annual risk of stroke/thrombosis from 8.6% to 2.0% and the annual risk of valve thrombosis from 1.8% to 0.4%.
