Femoropopliteal-crural graft patency is improved by an intensive surveillance program: a prospective randomized study.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether intensive surveillance compared with routine follow-up examinations improves femoropopliteal/crural graft patency. METHODS After operation… Expand
Upper extremity deep venous thrombosis in the population-based Malmö thrombophilia study (MATS). Epidemiology, risk factors, recurrence risk, and mortality.
BACKGROUND Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is much less common in the upper than in the lower extremity. Furthermore, there is limited information on risk factors for and the prognosis of upper… Expand
