  1. Patients with severe deep vein thrombosis may receive thrombolytic therapy to try to dissolve clots. Tissue plasminogen activator is the most commonly used thrombolytic therapy. Thrombolytics increases the risk of serious bleeding so this is only used when the patient’s vein thrombosis is life-threatening.
