Causes

There might be no apparent reasons for developing thrombosis, however some causes could result in enhancing the risk of it. Inactivity
  1. The chances of blood clotting due to slow down of the blood circulation flow have its origin in inactivity for long periods which happens in bed-ridden patients.
Blood Vessel Damage
  1. Formation of blood clot due to damaged blood vessels caused by broken bones, severe muscle injury or during surgery.
Medical & genetic conditions: These conditions include
  1. Treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  2. Heart and lung disease
  3. Infectious diseases like hepatitis
  4. Inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis
  5. Genetic reasons
  6. Hughes syndrome (blood becomes abnormally “sticky”)
Pregnancy: During pregnancy the body has a tendency towards blood clot. Contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapy: Both of these contain Oestrogen which has a property to clot blood more easily. Other causes:
  1. Obesity
  2. Smoking
  3. Dehydrated state
  4. Aging resulting in reduced mobility
