In contrast to the extensive documentation on diagnosis and treatment of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), information about long-term complications, like the post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS), is scarce. Most studies report on clinical examination only, whereas adequate haemodynamic investigation is lacking. Therefore 81 patients with venographically confirmed lower extremity DVT were clinically and haemodynamically reexamined 7-13 years after DVT (mean 10 years) to assess PTS.
