03/10/2009 - Andrew Flintoff Suffers Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep Vein Thrombosis During Andrew's recovery from a Knee surgery, the World renowned Cricket player has developed a deep vein thrombosis in his right calf, the condition, often associated with long-haul airline flights, however all people with immobile calf muscles for long periods of time are at risk. DVT is caused by blood clotting and can be fatal if it goes undetected.

However, a statement from the ECB medical team described the setback as easily treatable once discovered, adding that it would "require a simple course of treatment and will not complicate his recovery from surgery".

Flintoff underwent routine arthroscopy and micro-fracture to two small areas in his right knee on August 24, a day after England regained the Ashes, and was expected to be on crutches for a minimum of six weeks.
He admitted in a newspaper interview that there was a chance he might never play again, but has targeted the tour of Bangladesh in February/March 2010 for his comeback.

The most famous case of cricketing DVT was that of Steve Waugh, who in 2001 underwent a course of blood-thinning treatment after developing a clot in the torn calf muscle which he had defied to score a memorable unbeaten 157 against England in the final Test of that summer at The Oval.

The risk of DVT can be reduced by wearing a compression garment post treatment while recovering.
