Older age associated with DVT in patients with isolated calcaneal fractures
August 27, 2016

Recently published results showed patients with isolated calcaneal fractures had an incidence of preoperative deep vein thrombosis that was almost twice as high as any reported in previously published examinations of lower extremity injuries.

Researchers compared 159 patients with isolated calcaneal fractures who had preoperative deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with a cohort of patients who did not have preoperative DVT. At least 7 days after injury, all patients had a preoperative duplex ultrasound performed, according to researchers.
