Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of risk factors for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) on thrombus sizes in lower extremities. The size and extent of thrombus was scored according to International Consensus Committee for venous disease classification. After the diagnosis of DVT was established and its size scored, predominant risk factors for DVT in each patient were identified (malignant disease, thrombophilia, postoperative state, hormonal therapy, heredity, limb trauma, immobilization, others and unknown risk factors). The average thrombus score was 6 (95% CI 5.47– 6.53). The analysis of thrombus size indicated that the largest thrombi were found in ...
