Holy Name Medical Center is happy to announce that we have begun our return to normal operations. You may wonder, Is the hospital safe? Yes. We are ready. Ready to partner with you and your family on all your healthcare needs.

Holy Name is the first hospital in North Jersey to complete a rigorous, deep cleaning of our 450,000 square feet of clinical and non-clinical space. We started with manual disinfection, then applied electrostatic sanitizing mist, and finally, blasted UV-C light to kill more than 30 types of pathogens — including Covid-19.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms deep in a leg vein. It can cause permanent damage to the leg or become life-threatening if the clot travels to the lung and blocks blood flow, known as a pulmonary embolism.

DVT often develops in patients who have had surgery or in healthy individuals who have been immobile for a long period of time, such as passengers on a long airline flight. The clot typically forms in a pelvic, thigh or calf vein that returns blood to the heart and lungs, causing leg pain and swelling.


  • Pain or tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration or redness in the affected area
  • Skin that is warm to the touch
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath


Holy Name Medical Center’s Interventional Radiologists can break up the clot and restore normal blood flow by guiding a catheter to the site of the clot and delivering a clot-busting drug. At the same time, a stent can be implanted if the vein is very narrow to help prevent future clots.


  • Low risk of complications
  • Quick recovery
  • Can be life-saving
  • Helps to prevent other clots from forming
