In patients with proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT), tailoring the duration of oral anticoagulation based on serial ultrasonography reduces the rate of recurrent DVT. Prolongation of chronic anticoagulation may accelerate vein recanalization. Residual DVT on ultrasonography is a marker of hypercoagulability.
