We present the case of a 29 year-old female patient, who developed during the 17th week of her second pregnancy an episode of superficial thrombophlebitis in the right external saphenous vein and the right popliteal vein
, complicated in the 24th week with right ilio-femoral thrombosis, for which treatment with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) was initiated.
Duplex scan of three out of the four pts revealed thrombosis of the calf veins while one pt had popliteal vein
To the Editor: A 67-year-old female was referred for persisted swelling in right leg despite of anticoagulation during 2 months for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the right popliteal vein
DVI was observed only in the main femoral vein (FV) 172 (58.3%), only in the FV 21 (7.12%), only in the deep FV 3 (l.02%), only the in popliteal vein
27 (9.15%), in multiple veins 72 (21.24%) of 295 LEs with DVI.
A Doppler scan of the legs showed a DVT involving the distal right femoral vein and right popliteal vein
It is reported that the long saphenous vein is the most affected vein and followed by the femoral vein and popliteal vein
in the lower extremity .
Patient underwent lower extremity venous duplex showing acute DVT of the right popliteal vein
. EEG was performed while inpatient was negative for epileptiform activity.
MH, LH; medial and lateral heads of gastronomies; PV; popliteal vein
The most drastic change in percent occlusion was of the left popliteal vein
, which underwent a rapid and complete resolution of the thrombosis within 16 days of warfarin treatment after a slow but steady decline in the size of the thrombus with rivaroxaban therapy alone (Figure 2(e)).

The popliteal vein
starts medial, courses posterior to the artery in the fossa, and ultimately courses posterolateral to the artery.
