Many centers advocate aggressive lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT) screening using ultrasound (LUS) for patients meeting high-risk criteria. We hypothesized that a high-risk screening protocol is impractical and costly to implement.

This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess whether compression stockings or other interventions reduce the incidence of venous ulceration after acute deep venous thrombosis.
Despite significant advances in the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE), deep venous thromboembolism (DVT) and pulmonary (PE) remains the most common preventable cause of hospital...
Coagulation factors are essential for robust clot formation. However, elevated levels of procoagulant factors are associated with in increased risk for venous thrombosis. The precise contribution of t...
To evaluate the effect of hospitalization on deep venous thrombosis (DVT) rate by the cumulative incidence of DVT in the proximal venous tract of the lower limbs at admission and discharge.
Thrombolytic therapy is effective in fresh deep vein thrombosis (DVT) although the benefit may fall below the risk of bleeding in non-fresh thrombosis. Markers reflecting fresh DVT have not been estab...
This is a prospective, randomized vanguard trial of trauma patients admitted to the trauma surgery service at Intermountain Medical Center who are deemed to be at high risk for venous thro...
To investigate the incidence of pre- and early postoperative deep venous thrombosis in patients undergoing hepatobiliopancreatic surgery, as well as potential corresponding risk factors wi...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of infrared thermal imaging in adjunctive diagnostic screening for lower limb deep venous thrombosis (DVT).
Epidemiological studies have shown a 2-3 fold increased long-term risk of arterial cardiovascular disease after venous thrombosis, most predominant in the first year following initial veno...
Background: Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common and important vascular disease due to its morbidity and mortality. Its incidence remains high throughout the world and constitutes ser...
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.
A platelet-specific protein which is released when platelets aggregate. Elevated plasma levels have been reported after deep venous thrombosis, pre-eclampsia, myocardial infarction with mural thrombosis, and myeloproliferative disorders. Measurement of beta-thromboglobulin in biological fluids by radioimmunoassay is used for the diagnosis and assessment of progress of thromboembolic disorders.
Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.
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.
A condition caused by one or more episodes of DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS, usually the blood clots are lodged in the legs. Clinical features include EDEMA; PAIN; aching; heaviness; and MUSCLE CRAMP in the leg. When severe leg swelling leads to skin breakdown, it is called venous STASIS ULCER.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
