Elastic compression stockings are useful for preventing post-thrombotic syndrome after deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Less is known about their effects on thrombus recanalization and the optimal timing for starting compression. This study investigated whether compression applied early was more effective than when started 2 weeks after DVT. Seventy-three patients with DVT were randomly assigned to elastic compression hosiery starting either immediately after diagnosis or 2 weeks later. After 14… CONTINUE READING
