BACKGROUND Recent findings have demonstrated a high frequency of activated protein C resistance in patients suffering from deep venous thrombosis (DVT). This abnormality has been related to a mutation in the factor V gene (at nucleotide position 1,691, guanine to adenine [G-->A] substitution).

METHODS All consecutive patients admitted to the… CONTINUE READING
