Like Dr. Roberts, we also see anticoagulation therapy when deemed appropriate/more severe and occlusive. Depending on extend and other factors related to patient condion, we occasionally see these go untreated as they are not typically symptomatic (swelling) long term, if at all. We will do close f/u in the vascular lab for those patients. Often the thrombus resloves without incident. I do not recall hearing of a case of PE, likely because the higher risk patients get anticoagulants.

Or you can try and angioplasty but not too successful. If patient becomes too symptomatic removed the device and place on the right .-------- Original message --------From: Steve Knight <[log in to unmask]>Date: 3/23/2016 6:52 PM (GMT-05:00)Subject: UE DVT and pacemakers
Anecdotally, the last 3 patients I have scanned for upper extremity edema happened to have pacemakers and all three had DVT. Since it's no small feat to place a pacemaker, how are these patient's managed?To unsubscribe or search other topics on UVM Flownet link to: http://list.uvm.edu/archives/uvmflownet.html
