Can we use biomarkers of coagulation to predict which patients with foot and ankle injury will develop deep vein thrombosis?

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2017 Source: Foot and Ankle Surgery Author(s): Mr Ben A Hickey, Mr Andrew Cleves, Dr Raza Alikhan, Professor Neil Pugh, Professor Len Nokes, Mr Anthony Perera Background Our aim was to determine whether plasma levels of Tissue Factor (TF), Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule 1 (VCAM-1), Interleukin 6 (IL-6) or D-dimer after foot and ankle injury could predict which patients would develop deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Methods Patients aged 18-60 years with acute foot and ankle injury had venous blood sample to measure TF, VCAM-1, IL-6 and D-dimer within 3 days of injury
