abstract

  • As many as two thirds of patients with new symptoms after documented DVT have postphlebitic syndrome, not DVT. Noninvasive imaging is central to the differentiation so that unnecessary anticoagulation therapy can be avoided. Recent changes in heparin and warfarin protocols for DVT are also outlined.
