Thrombosis In The Travel
Thrombosis can even occur in healthy people who sit for long periods, for instance, during lengthy drives or plane flights. Wearing travel stockings (support hose) continously makes the veins narrow slightly and the blood flow more rapidly, making clotting less likely. Clinical studies have shown that; Variform travel stockings are able to reduce the incidence of asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis and of leg oedema. Very large number of passengers would be needed to asses the outcome concerning symptomatic DVT, pulmonary embolism and death.
