Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes DVT and pulmonary embolism, is the 3rd leading cause of cardiovascular death behind heart attack and stroke. Despite its prevalence, DVT is poorly understood and managed by the medical community. Patients often hit many roadblocks in their search for specialists with expertise in venous disease. Read my interview with Endovascular Today on the challenges of DVT awareness and education.
