Resumen

GARCIA FAJARDO, José Daniel et al. Doppler ultrasound in diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis of lower limbs. Multimed [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.6, pp.1271-1282.  Epub 04-Nov-2020. ISSN 1028-4818.

Introduction:

thrombosis that occurs in the deep venous system is more important than those of the superficial venous system, due to the severity of its complications, which can become fatal.

Objective:

describe Doppler ultrasound findings in patients with lower limb venous thrombosis.

Methods:

an observational, descriptive study of series of cases was carried out of patients diagnosed with venous thrombosis of lower limbs, attended in the Angiology and Vascular Surgery Service of the Provincial Teaching Hospital Clinicoquirúrgico Saturnino Lora Torres de Santiago de Cuba, from January 2015 to June 2017.

Results:

doppler ultrasound showed safeno-femoral confluent (58.6%). The visualization of thrombus as a direct sign was present at 94.8%, coinciding with equal percentage the presence of venous dilations as an indirect sign.

Conclusions:

doppler ultrasound showed thrombus visualization and lack of compresibility as more common ultrasound signs; diagnosis made predominantly between 24 and 48 hours resulting in the most affected common femoral vein.
