The most common cause for a blood clot is prolonged periods of immobilization. Usually, when we move, the calf and thigh muscles squeeze the veins to help return impure blood back to the heart and lungs. If you sit in a cramped place, without room to move your legs for a long time, blood movement becomes sluggish. Even dehydration can thicken the blood and cause clotting. This particular condition is called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Today, Dr M S Sandhu, Head, Cardiology at Artemis Health Institute, helps us understand DVT in detail. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
