- Clinical image of the week. // GP: General Practitioner;11/10/2003, p8
The hazard period for developing deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is within two weeks of a long-haul flight, according to researchers in Australia. Just one long-haul flight a year increases the risk of DVT by 12 per cent, although the risk of death remains small â€” just one in two million.
- DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS. Copeland, Duan C.; Gretzer, Matthew B. // Contemporary Urology;May2006, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p48
The article examines the causes of and risk factors for deep venous thrombosis, and discusses guidelines for prevention in urologic surgery. It identifies factors that are thought to be primarily responsible for the development of a thrombus within a vein. It also identifies conditions that...
