Superficial Phlebitis and Acute Thrombophlebitis
What Is Phlebitis?
Symptoms of Acute Thrombophlebitis
Symptoms of acute thrombophlebitis involving a varicose vein include pain, tenderness, warmth, swelling, and inflammation in the area of the clot. Anyone suspected of having acute thrombophlebitis should be promptly evaluated by a physician, who should include an evaluation of the deep venous system. A non-invasive ultrasound is usually readily available to diagnose the condition and assess the extent of the clotting.
