Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the name for a blood clot (or thrombus) in one of the body’s deep veins, usually in the lower leg. This is dangerous because part of the clot can break off and travel to the lungs, which can be fatal. DVT can occur after long haul (longer than 6 to 8 hours) flights. In the past this was called ‘economy class syndrome’. However, this term is misleading: DVT can occur following any type of immobility, for example after an operation, or long car and train journeys. The preferred phrase for DVT that occurs following travel is: “Travel-Related DVT”.
