Lower Extremity Vessel Disease

The ability of thermography to detect the presence of deep vein thrombosis and other circulatory disorders of the lower extremities is a very exciting application of this procedure as it allows us to painlessly and safely detect possible disease that if unchecked, could cause the loss of a limb, or…

Diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.

One hundred patients with clinically suspected deep vein thrombosis (DVT) were studied by liquid crystal thermography (LCT), duplex scanning and venography. Liquid crystal thermography was found to have a negative predictive value of 97 % if performed within 1 week of the onset of symptoms. Duplex scanning had a sensitivity…

Thermography and plethysmography, a non-invasive alternative to venography in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.

One plethysmographic and two thermographic methods were evaluated against venography in 102 patients with suspected deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Seventy-one patients had venographically verified DVT, which in 21 cases was restricted to the calf. Plethysmography (PG) gave a sensitivity and specificity of 63 % and 94 %, respectively. The former…

The Thrombo-embolic Risk in Surgery.

Postoperative deep-vein thrombosis can lead to fatal pulmonary embolism on one side, and the development of a disabling postthrombotic syndrome, which can occur after some time. General thrombo-embolic prophylaxis can reduce the risk of postoperative thrombo-embolic complications. Predisposing factors include age, obesity, immobilization and recumbency. Cardiovascular diseases, malignant neoplasms, venous…
