Superficial Venous Thrombosis More Than Meets The Eye

Medicus magazine Aug 2016


Superficial Venous Thrombosis (SVT) is a common condition involving superficial veins close to the surface of the skin. There is a growing body of international evidence redefining the significance of SVT. Once considered a benign condition of little importance, it is now understood to be part of a spectrum of thromboembolic disease that includes DVT & PE.1-14 The term Superficial Venous Thrombosis should replace “superficial thrombophlebitis” as it is primarily a thrombotic rather than inflammatory condition, with the old term having connotations of a benign inflammatory condition often leading to unnecessary administration of antibiotics.
