Indications for intervention include the relatively rare phlegmasia or symptomatic inferior vena cava thrombosis that responds poorly to anticoagulation alone, or symptomatic iliofemoral or femoropopliteal DVT in patients with a low risk of bleeding.Current research in anticoagulants involves investigations into drugs that act on various phases of the coagulation cascade.For admitted patients treated with UFH, the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) or heparin activity level must be monitored every 6 hours while the patient is taking intravenous (IV) heparin until the dose is stabilized in the therapeutic range.Surgical Thrombectomy with Temporary Arteriovenous Fistula in Early Iliac Vein Patency.
Residual vein obstruction to predict the risk of recurrentThis reduces leg edema, aids the microcirculation, and prevents venous ischemia.Studies of pneumatic compression in cardiac surgery and neurosurgical patients have shown a distinct improvement in the incidence of DVT without the added risk of bleeding.
