OBJECTIVES The aims of the study(More)

Current guidelines do not differentiate between PE in segmental and subsegmental vessels, and many patients receive at least 3(More)
BACKGROUND It is standard of care to treat proximal vein deep vein thrombosis (DVT) for a minimum of 3 months. Conversely, management of isolated distal DVT (IDDVT) is controversial, with options including observation and repeat ultrasound scan within 1 week to detect and anticoagulate those with proximal propagation, or anticoagulation for periods of up to(More)
