  • The clinical diagnosis of venous thrombosis is highly non-specific. The reason for this is that none of the symptoms or signs of venous thrombosis is unique to this condition--that is, each can be caused by nonthrombotic disorders. Objective testing to confirm or exclude the diagnosis of venous thrombosis, then, is mandatory in patients with clinically suspected deep vein thrombosis.
