Is air pollution related to clots in the leg veins (DVT)?

By: Hratch Karamannoukian MD and Raffy Karamanoukian MD

July 24, 2008

A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine on May 12, 2008 by Dr. Baccarelli and colleagues from the Exposure, Epidemiology, and Risk Program, Department of Environmental Health, Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts investigated whether particulate air pollution exposure is related to development of venous thrombosis (DVT). The researchers showed in this landmark study that indeed "long-term exposure to particulate air pollution is associated with altered coagulation function and DVT risk. Other risk factors for DVT may modulate the effect of particulate air pollution". We are sure that this is not the last time we will hear about this and that further studies will further elucidate the reasons why air pollution causes venous disorders and venous thrombosis.
