Craig M. -

Did the study correlate the PE pts with the "extension" pts. In other words, was it the extension pts that went on to have PE?

Rob O -

Hi Craig, The main outcomes were proximal DVT or PE within 180 days of diagnosis of the calf clot. Breaking this down further, there were 7 proximal clots in the control group and 4 in the anticoag group. As far as those with PE resulting from a calf clot - was there proximal extension before the PE happened? That was not clarified in the paper.
