Hypertension and Venous Thromboembolism
Hypertensive cardiovascular diseases are caused due to high blood pressure. Hypertension is one of the most important factors of risk for heart diseases. 54% of all kinds of strokes and 47% of ischemic heart diseases are caused due to hypertension. Venous thromboembolism is a disease where a blood clot is formed in the deep veins of the legs, arm or groin. The blood clot flows to the lungs which is called pulmonary embolism.There are many studies done on hypertension and DVT, but the results are inconsistent.
