ABSTRACT
The article comments on an article related to the distribution of deep vein thrombosis in pregnant women, published within this issue. It states that deep vein thrombosis is caused by several problems including damage of vessel wall, low blood flow, and hypercoagulability. The results of the study suggest that the occurrence of this disease is different in pregnant women as compared to non- pregnant women.
