Özet

Objective: Lower extremity (LE) deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is the main feature of vascular involvement in Behcet disease (BD). We thought that vein wall thickness (VWT) could be a surrogate marker for venous inflammation and hence predict future vascular involvement. We assessed VWT in proximal LE veins in BD patients without DVT, BD patients with DVT, and healthy controls in a formal, masked protocol.
