Re: Prevention of deep vein thrombosis is as important as diagnosis and management
Thank you for your comments regarding the prevention of DVT.
As the diagnosis, investigation and management of DVT is quite a
broad topic it was difficult to confine the article to 2000 words and so I
could not include a paragraph on thromboprophylaxis. Moreover, we were
restricted to 25 references.
I think that an up to date evidence-based review on the prevention of
DVT is important and topical and warrants a complete paper rather than a
I have almost finished a review on DVT and air travel which I hope to
get published. This article will include all the evidence for the various
preventive measures for DVT.
Thank you for interest in this topic.
I have been reimbursed by Pharmacia, the manufacturers of Fragmin, for attending a conference.
