The Riskiest Surgeries for Deep Vein Thrombosis. Three main factors influence an individual’s chances of developing deep vein thrombosis after surgery: hypercoagulability (an increase in the blood’s ability to clot), endothelial injury (damage to the lining of blood vessels), and venous stasis (slowing of the blood flow in the veins).

Venous Thrombosis
Venous Thrombosis

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a blood clot that starts in a vein. It is the third leading vascular diagnosis after heart attack and stroke, affecting about 300,000–600,000 Americans each year.
