What is a Blood Clot?

The medical name for a clot that starts in a vein is a venous thromboembolism (VTE).  There are two types – a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which usually starts in a deep vein in the leg; and a pulmonary embolism (PE) which happens when a DVT breaks away and gets trapped in a blood vessel in the lungs.
