ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study conducted to test if thigh-length graduated compression stockings (GCSs) prevent deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in patients with recent ischemic heart stroke. The results indicate that GCSs did not reduce risk for proximal DVT or other measures of venous thromboembolism and also showed increased skin complications.

    Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a frequent complication of lung cancer and its treatment, especially in the advanced stages of disease. The risk of a pro-thrombotic state might increase through the activation of hemostasis, occurring both via the induction of a pro-coagulant activity and with...

    Chiari network occurs due to incomplete resorption of right valve of sinus venosus. It is often noticed as fenestrated membranous structure or reticular network like structure in the valve of inferior vena cava and coronary sinus. The remnant of left venous valve is observed as trabeculae over...

    The phlegmon is a diffused suppuration with an extensive character, with no suppurated collection. It is characterized by vascular thrombosis, extended necrosis and the presence of gaseous blisters. The siderite tissue is infiltrated with sangvinolent serosity, rarely purulent, very fetid that...
