A blood clot that forms in a vein in the leg or arm can block blood flow and cause swelling and pain. In certain cases, the clot may break off and travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). This can be fatal. Peripheral venous thrombolysis is a procedure to dissolve a blood clot in a leg or arm vein, relieve symptoms and prevent pulmonary embolism. The procedure is often done by a specially trained doctor called an interventional radiologist.
