Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) has an incidence of 45 to 117 per 100,000 person-years.1 Distal DVT, defined as a venous thrombosis isolated to the calf veins, comprises one-third to one-half of all DVTs.2 However, the treatment of distal DVTs is more controversial with significant variations in practice with regard to decisions on anticoagulation.3.
