In the United States:

  • Nearly one-third of people who have had deep venous thrombosis have post-thrombotic syndrome, a chronic disabling condition characterized by swelling, pain, discoloration, and scaling in the affected limb.
  • 5-8% of people have thrombophilia (inherited blood clotting disorders).
