As a Deep vein thrombosis patient myself, I had 6 gastrocnemius veins that
were totally occluded, which then propagated to the SPJ and the femoral
proximally over a 4-6 day period.  Lovenox and Coumadin has now recannalized
the majority of these.  Oh yes, I did have an 11 hour period of SOB without
a documented PE on CT.  
I am sorry but any vein that has an accompanying artery is a deep vein which
all deep veins are muscular veins.  From an old,old vascular tech...

Bill--
Don, question authority? Seriously? I obviously spend more time with him
than you. Sorry Don, just had to reply.
To question is the basis of science and investigation. Don's are always
educational. 
I have to say, also, my experience of serial following many calf thrombi is
that they don't prop vs they do. But I leave the DX and treatment to my MD.
Every thrombi has a different story, I like to think of the storyline and 
what I am seeing, you know that "the whole patient" thing, no one answer.
Ben Franklin-I could hang with him, he definitely had an imagination and 
could come up with fun things to do, definitely not boring.Reminds me more
of Jerome, don't you think Don?

Just having fun in San Diego.
