Venous thromboembolism (VTE), also known as blood clots, is an underdiagnosed and serious, but preventable medical condition. It is important to know about VTE because it can happen to anybody at any age and cause serious illness, disability, and in some cases, death. The good news is that VTE can be prevented and treated if discovered early.
