Thrombosis patients face greater risks than previously believed
Date:12/2/2008

elief, DVT doesn't just affect older people, it can affect adults of all ages," explained Kahn, an associate professor at McGill's Faculty of Medicine and Director of the Thrombosis Program and Associate Director of the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology & Community Studies at the JGH. "Developing postthrombotic syndrome and similar complications have been shown to lead to significant disability, lost workdays and very poor quality of life."

In addition to simply documenting the incidence of PTS, Kahn and her colleagues also attempted to identify risk factors that made certain patients more likely than others to develop it. They discovered that older patients, patients who had suffered a previous bout of DVT and patients with larger blood clots at the time of diagnosis faced a greater risk of developing PTS. Moreover, they also discovered that the risk of developing PTS was far higher in patients still experiencing leg symptoms one month after DVT was first diagnosed and treated.

"This suggests that physicians can predict if a patient is likely to develop chronic PTS as early as one month after DVT diagnosis," Kahn said. "Our results show that current modalities to treat acute DVT are not effective in preventing chronic complications of DVT, and emphasize the need for additional research in the prevention and treatment of PTS."
