  • Compression ultrasonography is regarded as the non-invasive gold-standard to detect deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients presenting with symptoms. However, its use as a screening method in symptom-free postoperative patients at high risk of developing DVT remains controversial. In 100 consecutive patients who had undergone craniotomy, we compared the results of bilateral compression ultrasonic measurements of the results of bilateral compression ultrasonic measurements of the entire legs with… CONTINUE READING
