ABSTRACT
The article reports that below-knee elastic compression stockings reduced development of the postthrombotic syndrome in proximal deep venous thrombosis. Daily wearing of below-knee, graded, elastic compression stockings on the affected leg for two years or not wearing elastic compression stockings. In patients with a first episode of acute symptomatic proximal deep venous thrombosis, below-knee elastic compression stockings reduced the development of the postthrombotic syndrome.
