The syndrome is also known as “effort-induced thrombosis” as it has been reported to occur after vigorous activity, though it can also occur spontaneously.
It usually presents in young and otherwise healthy patients, males more often than females.
Symptoms include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, and swelling in the arm. These DVT's should be treated as an emergency, but rarely cause fatal pulmonary emboli. (more...)
