Single Complete Compression Ultrasonography to Rule Out Deep Vein Thrombosis During Pregnancy and Postpartum
The objective of the EDVIGE study is to determine whether a negative single distal and proximal leg veins compression ultrasonography safely rules out the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis in pregnant and post-partum women with clinical suspicion of DVT.
A single distal and proximal leg veins compression ultrasonography has been shown to safely rule out the diagnosis of DVT when negative. The safety of this strategy has never been verified in pregnant or postpartum women. It could however be limited in that clinical setting, because of modified hemodynamics, hampered observation conditions, lack of respiratory modulation, higher proportion of isolated iliac deep vein thromboses. The objective of the EDVIGE study is to assess the safety of this diagnostic strategy during pregnancy and post-partum.

Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Devices
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
Tight coverings for the foot and leg that are worn to aid circulation in the legs and prevent the formation of EDEMA and DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION STOCKINGS serve a similar purpose especially for bedridden patients and following surgery.
The venous trunk of the upper limb; a continuation of the basilar and brachial veins running from the lower border of the teres major muscle to the outer border of the first rib where it becomes the subclavian vein.
Veins which return blood from the intestines; the inferior mesenteric vein empties into the splenic vein, the superior mesenteric vein joins the splenic vein to form the portal vein.
Deep vein thrombosis is a common problem in the intensive care unit and diagnosis is often delayed due to limited availability of a formal duplex ultrasound. Physician performed 2 point c...

INTRODUCTION: The optimal duration of thromboprophylaxis after total knee arthroplasty remains uncertain. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a randomized, open trial to determine whether to stop throm...
In Behçet's disease, deep venous thrombosis occurs primarily in the lower extremities. Total recanalization rate is low, so thrombotic segment could be detected by imaging afterward. For disclosing v...
With the increased availability of multi-detector row CT, indirect CT venography has become an important non-invasive image modality for patients with suspected deep vein thrombosis. Use of indirect C...
