PMID:  1950226     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In a prospective sequential trial we investigated the incidence of symptomatic deep vein thrombosis of the legs in 304 patients after microsurgical operation for lumbar intervertebral disc disease or osteogenic root compression. None of these developed signs or symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, neither when receiving pharmacological prophylaxis, nor without it. Superficial phlebitis was found almost exclusively in patients with preexisting varicosis, developing mainly in the 3rd week after the operation.
