Thromboembolism during pregnancy is a rare complication with a potential fatal outcome. Very little is known about long-term effects and therefore 104 women with thrombosis during pregnancy or puerperium were identified and their subjective complaints were assessed in a questionnaire. All had their thrombosis diagnosed by objective methods and the median follow-up time was 11 years. In spite of anticoagulant treatment only 22% were without complaints; 4% had ulceration, all occurring in the group with thrombosis during pregnancy. Significantly more women who had had their thrombosis during pregnancy used compression bandages than those who had their thrombosis during puerperium. The severity of the symptoms increased with the increasing number of thromboses. Anticoagulant therapy of the acute episode does not appear to alter the degree of long-term handicap in the lower limbs.
