Abstract

Aim. Two diagnostic imaging strategies for suspected deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in symptomatic patients are currently used: a serial compression ultrasound examination of proximal veins, or a single complete ultrasound investigation of proximal and distal veins. These strategies lead to different results since only the latter allows diagnosis of isolated calf DVT (ICDVT). Methods. We analyzed the approach of Italian centers in looking for ICDVT using the observational MASTER registry which prospectively collected information on patients with acute symptomatic venous thromboembolism. Results. ICDVT was diagnosed in 170 of the 1772 patients with leg DVT (9.6%). The rate of diagnosed ICDVT vs total DVT differed between centers from 0% to 24%. Patients with ICDVT were younger (P
