Thanks very much for your information regarding the recurrent DVT and PEs. Because the issue of the vena cava diameter increase I attach the image of the x-ray (phlebogram). I hope you can help me with this matter. Could this be an explanation of the recurrent DVTs and PEs? Mind you: despite the coumadin and INR within range it keeps happening... I would love to come over to your clinic to be evaluated again, but there are a few thousand miles between us...
Thanks very much for your time and reply again!
