ABSTRACT
The article presents the results of venography in a variety of clinical situations and illustrates how it has provided precise diagnostic information not obtainable by other means. During the past 4 years, slight modifications of this technique have been used in obtaining bilateral venograms in over 200 patients. The indications for performing the procedure included the evaluation of leg swelling, seeking the source of pulmonary emboli, aiding in establishing or eliminating the diagnosis of thrombophlebitis, evaluation of the deep circulation in patients with varicose veins and following the progress of anticoagulant or surgical therapy of thrombophlebitis.
