D-dimer and residual venous obstruction (RVO) have been separately shown to be risk factors for recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) after a first episode of unprovoked proximal deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). It was the objective of this study to assess the predictive value of D-dimer and residual vein obstruction (RVO), alone and in combination, for recurrence after provoked DVT of the lower limbs. A total of 296 consecutive patients with a first episode of symptomatic provoked proximal DVT… CONTINUE READING
