    We describe a rare case of Mondor's disease of the breast in a 35-year-old patient diagnosed on clinical suspicion and confirmed on breast ultrasonography. Aetiology of this condition remains speculative. Mondor's disease is benign and has a self-limiting course being successfully treated with...

    The article focuses on a research done in order to determine the accuracy of the Wells clinical prediction rule for excluding deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Topics discussed include diagnosis of DVT using compression ultrasonography or venography, failure rate in patients diagnosed with DVT, and...

    Background and purpose: The relationship of D-dimer and deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to assess the value of D-dimer in the detection of early DVT after TKA. Methods: The measurements of plasma D-dimer level...

    Background. Residual vein obstruction (RVO), the persistence of venous thrombosis with time and often after anticoagulation, may indicate a systemic prothrombotic condition. Prior studies have shown varying efficacy in using RVO as a risk factor for future venous thromboembolic (VTE) recurrence....
