Abstract

Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is the most frequent complication of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). International guidelines recommend assessing PTS with the Villalta scale, a clinical measure that incorporates venous symptoms and signs in the leg ipsilateral to a DVT. However, these signs and symptoms are not specific for PTS and their prevalence and relevance in the contralateral leg have not previously been studied.
