The most common form of venous thrombosis is a deep vein thrombosis DVT , when a blood clot forms in the deep veins of the leg. If the thrombus breaks off it embolizes and flows towards the lungs, it can become a pulmonary embolism PE , a blood clot in the lungs. This combination is called venous thromboembolism.

Normally, the valves in your veins make sure that blood flows toward your heart. This can cause blood to collect pool in your legs.
Venous insufficiency is a condition in which the veins have problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart. Normally, valves in your deeper leg veins keep blood moving forward toward the heart. With long-term chronic venous insufficiency, vein walls are weakened and valves are damaged. This causes the veins to stay filled with blood , especially when you are standing. Chronic venous insufficiency is a long-term condition.
