Travel and Deep Vein Thrombosis
The U.K. Department for Transport (DfT) has released a study that examines the link between deep vein thrombosis and all forms of travel of more than 4 hours in length. According to the report, long-distance travel leads to a small but increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The risk, which applies to all forms of travel, appears to be predominantly the result of prolonged immobility.
