Abstract

The incidence of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has increased significantly in the last few decades, probably secondary to the more widespread use of central venous lines. Those caring for patients both with and without known risk factors for thromboembolic venous disease should realize the importance of expertise in the prophylaxis, diagnosis, and management of upper extremity DVT.
