  • A possible drawback seen with studies like ADVANCE-2, the investigators noted, is the sizeable proportion of patients who had suboptimal or no venography after treatment (36% of apixaban and 35% of enoxaparin patients) and therefore couldn't be included in the efficacy analysis. - medical news plus CME for physicians

  • Technically adequate magnetic resonance angiography and venography had a sensitivity of 92% and a specificity of 96%, but 52% of patients (194 of 370) had technically inadequate results.

  • Magnetic resonance pulmonary angiography and magnetic resonance venography combined have a higher sensitivity than magnetic resonance pulmonary angiography alone in patients with technically adequate images, but it is more difficult to obtain technically adequate images with the 2 procedures.
