The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of deep vein thrombosis in stroke patients and to identify factors that alter its risk.

Among 5,703 cases of stroke, eight cases(0.14%) were diagnosed as deep vein thrombosis. The sites of deep vein thrombosis were superficial femoral veins(4 cases) and common femoral veins(4 cases). Deep vein thrombosis developed on the paretic leg alone and all patients were able to walk independently. There was no significant risk factors in these patients.

The results of this study showed that very low incidence of deep vein thrombosis in stroke patients compared with that of the other studies. The risk of deep vein thrombosis was high in paretic leg of bedridden patients.
