However, the bad news is that only 50% of those with DVT have symptoms, making this “Silent Killer” extremely difficult to diagnose. This is compounded by the fact that 74% of Americans have no knowledge about DVT, its symptoms or risk factors.
This is why raising awareness is critical. The National Alliance for Thrombosis and Thrombophilia (NATT) is working to prevent, diagnose and treat thrombosis and thrombophilia through education, research, support and advocacy.
1. More than 900,000 people in the United States are estimated to develop venous thromboembolisms - or clots in the veins - every year.
2. Almost 300,000 people die each year in the U.S. due to blood clots in the veins
3. This number is greater than the number of people who die each year of AIDS, breast cancer, or automobile accidents.
4. By raising money we can support the research and awareness needed to prevent these disorders.
