Rising Obese Population and Growing Healthcare Expenditure Fuels the Demand for Deep Vein Thrombosis Market


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2017 -- Lifestyle changes along with changes in eating habits lead to obesity, which causes accumulation of excessive fat and cholesterol, resulting in increase in body weight. Obesity is a problem around the world that affects a large number of people. Rising incidences of obesity are increasing the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) refers to the formation of a blood clot, also known as a thrombus, in one of the body's large veins, most commonly in the lower limbs. The most serious complication that can arise from DVT is a pulmonary embolism (PE), which occurs in over one-third of DVT patients. According to a study by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among the patients who have had a DVT, one-half is likely to have long-term complications (post-thrombotic syndrome) such as swelling, pain, discoloration, and scaling in the affected limb. Deep vein thrombosis can also occur in patients who have undergone a surgery, broken limbs, history of heart attack, and cancer.
