What is Thrombophlebitis?

Description of the Disease

Thrombophlebitis is the inflammation of the walls of the veins, accompanied by the formation of a thrombus inside the vessel. This condition often occurs in the lower extremities, but can also affect other parts of the body.


  • Superficial thrombophlebitis
  • Deep thrombophlebitis


Symptoms of thrombophlebitis include pain, swelling, redness, and increased temperature at the site of inflammation.


The main causes of thrombophlebitis are disorders of blood flow, trauma, surgical interventions, pregnancy, infections, and coagulation disorders.


Ultrasound examination, duplex scanning, and blood tests for the presence of thrombophilia are used to diagnose thrombophlebitis.


Treatment of thrombophlebitis includes the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, anticoagulants, compression clothing, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


Prevention of thrombophlebitis includes weight control, moderate physical activity, avoiding prolonged sitting or standing, and wearing compression clothing.


Thrombophlebitis is treated by a phlebologist - a physician specializing in venous diseases.
