The article presents a study that focuses on problems related to mobilization and discharge of patient treated for acute deep venous thrombosis of the leg. The problem of mobilization has been rarely discussed in the treatises of the treatment of thrombosis. A diagnosis of thrombosis based solely on clinical signs and symptoms cannot be accepted as a foundation for scientific analysis. The study consisted of 43 women and 27 men with roentgenologically confirmed thrombosis of the lower leg veins or the ileofemoral veins.
