The risk factors for arterial clots include obesity, smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a physical inactivity.
Venous Blood Clots
Venous blood clots develop slowly, usually after a surgery or trauma like a broken leg. They can be of three types, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE) and superficial venous thrombosis.
DVT develop in the lower leg, thigh or pelvis, as well as in the liver, brain, arm, intestines, and kidneys. PE blood clots have broken off the point of origin and can travel to the lungs, leading to fatal consequences. The last type forms near the surface of the skin, and lead to intense pain.
