PMID:  841048     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A simple screening procedure is needed to fill the gap between the clinical examination and venography in patients suspected of having deep-vein thrombosis of the lower extremities. The author suggests that measurement of the pedal venous pressure (PVP) be used for this purpose. Measurements of PVP in 86 lower extremities and correlation with venography showed that all extremities with a PVP greater than 35 cm saline were shown to be abnormal on venography, indicating that measurement of PVP can be a satisfactory screening procedure.
