Objective: The effective treatment of acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has great importance in the prevention of major complications [pulmonary embolism, postthrombotic syndrome (PTS)]. Compression stockings (CS) can also be used to improve the outcome. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of CS on PTS prevention in patients with proximal DVT and the effectiveness of the visual analog score (VAS) method to assess patient's satisfaction about pain.
