Traveller’s thrombosis

Traveller’s thrombosis consists of the formation of a blood clot, typically in the deep veins of the legs. Sometimes, this clot may become dislodged and compromise the lung, which is known as pulmonary embolism. Traveller's thrombosis can affect anyone who takes long distance trips that last for more than four hours, whether by plane, train, coach or car.
