Deep vein thrombosis is a condition where blood clots are formed in one or more of the deep veins in the body. It typically develops in the legs, thighs, and pelvis causing severe pain and swelling.

Whereas, when a DVT breaks loose and blocks the blood flow in the lung, it is called pulmonary embolism (PE).
