44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?

44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?

Need good ultrasound study and a cardiac echo: Was there a reason found for the stroke? A clot in the leg may travel to the lung, but should not normally be able to get to the brain. The most likely reason it did is a defect in the heart. An echocardiogram will help sort the heart out, and can guide a repair. A good ultrasound of the legs is necessary to see if there is a recurrent clot. If not, another consideration is Post-Thrombotic Syndrome - failure o the valves in the leg veins from scarring after DVT. Patients with DVT need to wear compression hose daily for at least 2 yrs after DVT to minimize the risk of PTS. ...Read more

We're not in control of how arms are positioned and this may cause pressure to the nerve resulting in the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

Today I went to have an ultrasound on my right arm and the results indicated I have a small blood clot. Doc didn't send me to the Er. Should I go?

It Depends...: Blood "clots" can be arterial or venous. Most often, ultrasound of the upper extremity is evaluating for venous thrombosis (clot in the veins). Thrombosis in the superficial veins (superficial thrombophlebitis or SVT) is typically treated with aspirin and or removal of the offending cause. Treatment in the deeper veins (deep vein thrombosis or DVT) is more complex. Make sure you ask your doctor. ...Read more
