How common is it to develop a blood clot or PE with no underlying clotting disorder, surgery, not on birth control, etc.? Like can a PE happen out of nowhere? Or is there always a culprit?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Usually, there is always an underlying risk factor for the development of deep vein thrombosis. Advanced age, genetic conditions, smoking, obesity, trauma, surgery, etc., are some of the risk factors. The genetic disease includes protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency, prothrombin gene mutation, etc. So it can be ruled out by full coagulation profile testing. Low molecular weight Heparin and oral anticoagulant drug like Apixaban are the modes of treatment for that. Usually, there is always some risk factor present for PE.
