Abstract

Aim: We investigated the association of the presence and the location of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) with D-dimer value in acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Methods: Weanalyzed the data regarding DVT in patients with ICH. Based on an ultrasonographic examination 2 weeks after the occurrence of ICH, the patients were divided according to the presence/absence and the location of DVT, i.e. no evidence of DVT (n-DVT), calf DVT (c-DVT), and proximal DVT (p-DVT). D-dimer value was measured 2 weeks later and compared among the groups. Results: The numbers of patients with n-DVT, c-DVT and p-DVT were 27, 19, and 2, respectively. Univariate analysis indicated that D-dimer values were significantly different between patients with n-DVT and c-DVT and between patients with n-DVT and p-DVT (p<0.05, respectively). The cut-off value for estimating the presence of DVT and p-DVT was 3.9 µg/mL and 18.5 µg/mL, respectively. Conclusion: D-dimer value assessment after 2 weeks may be associated with the presence and the location of DVT in patients with ICH.
