Segmental air plethysmography in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
Surg Gynecol Obstet. 1987 Dec; 165(6):488-90.SG

Abstract

The diagnostic accuracy of segmental air plethysmography using a pulse volume recorder in the detection of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) was assessed. Measurements in 25 limbs with phlebographic proof of DVT and 25 limbs with normal phlebographic examination results were used to develop criteria. With these criteria, a prospective analysis of 50 limbs of patients suspected of having DVT was done. High sensitivity and specificity rates were found for proximal DVT. An accurate plethysmographic diagnosis could not be obtained for nonocclusive DVT or thrombosis confined to calf veins. The accuracy of the segmental air technique was comparable with that of other plethysmographic techniques.
