This article presents an overview of clinical management of the thrombosed vessel. Serial venographic studies carried out during the 1st week in patients treated with heparin following an attack of proximal deep vein thrombophlebitis of the lower extremity, i.e., thrombosis of the popliteal or more proximal veins, have shown that complete resolution of the venous thrombosis can be expected to occur in 10% or less of patients, some resolution may be evident in approximately another 15-20%, while the remainder show either no resolution or some further progression of the underlying process.
