Preventing venous thrombosis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

A thrombosis is a blockage of a blood vessel by a blood clot, often in the legs. Clots can develop as a response to damage or if there is insufficient blood flow. They can occur if a person suffers from a clotting disorder, is confined to bed, is seriously overweight or undergoes operations. Symptoms include numbness, pain, swelling and redness. If a blood clot breaks free from a deep vein thrombosis, there is a risk it will cause a pulmonary embolism.

Venous thrombosis and heredity

The risk of venous thrombosis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of venous thrombosis.
