Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a frequent event in patients with spinal cord injury, even with prophylactic anticoagulant therapy. Lower limb paralysis is a known major risk factor for venous thrombosis, supposedly due to the venostasis in relation with total immobility. The main goal of this study was to evaluate the endothelial response to anoxia to… CONTINUE READING
