Chris:
I report gastroc & soleal clots, but not as DVT.  I only identify what veins
they are in.  They are paired veins but not deep (according to my training).
Docs do not have a regimented treatment for them.  Some docs treat them with
IV, others treat more conservatively; also depends on the extent of the
clot.  If multiple gast/sol veins are clotted, they usually treat with IV.
Are they recurrent?  Do they extend into the deep system?
