Frequency of pulmonary embolism in ambulant patients with pelvic vein thrombosis : a prospective study.
American Venous Forum. Annual Meeting. Coronado CA (USA), 1992/02/26.
One hundred thirty-nine consecutive patients (average age 70.1 years) who were able to walk with a swollen leg were seen at the clinic where diagnosis of acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT) extending to the pelvis was confirmed by injecting microspheres labeled with technetium 99m into the dorsal foot vein (radionuclide venography).
Thirty-nine (28%) of these patients had malignant disease.
Perfusionn lung scans performed immediately after radionuclide venography were supplemented by inhalation scans (99mTc-labeled diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid aerosol) in case of perfusion defects.
