  • Survey of methods used to determine if a patient has a deep vein thrombosis: An exploratory research report. [Journal Article]
    Physiother Theory Pract 2017; 33(9):733-742Heick JD, Farris JW
  • CONCLUSIONS: The response rate was 22.4% and therefore may not fully represent the population of physical therapy clinical instructors in the United States.Results from this exploratory survey indicated that approximately two-thirds of physical therapy clinical instructors used outdated DVT/VTE screening methods that they were taught in their entry-level education and nearly two-thirds did not identify the major risk factors associated with DVT/VTE. These results suggest that change is necessary in physical therapy education, clinical practice, and continuing professional development to ensure a more evidenced-based identification of DVT and VTE.

  • Deep vein thrombosis after total knee arthroplasty. [Journal Article]
    J Formos Med Assoc 2000; 99(11):848-53Wang CJ, Wang JW, … Cheng SM
  • CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of DVT after TKA in this southern Taiwanese cohort was similar to that in Western populations, and higher than is commonly assumed by clinicians at this facility. However, the rate of proximal thrombosis and pulmonary embolism was much lower than in previous studies from Western populations. The majority of cases of DVT involved the veins in the calf; approximately 70% of patients were symptomatic and required treatment.
