    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    A blood clot can occur in any part of the body that can lead to a heart attack, stroke, and damage to organs (even coma or death). Blood clots can reach your arteries or veins in the organs like the brain, kidney, heart, lungs, and limbs. Conditions like atherosclerosis, diabetes, heart failure, irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), and obesity/overweight can trigger excessive blood clotting in the brain and heart. On the other hand, deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in veins), peripheral artery disease (narrowed arteries due to fat deposit or blood clot), and atherosclerosis (fat build upon the walls of the arteries) can cause a blood clot in your limbs.
