The treatment of venous thrombosis is very much a method of "damned if you do, damned if you don't." One is never quite sure which case may develop a fatal pulmonary embolism. Out of the welter of confusion on this subject, however, are evolving certain principles which seem reasonable but which may need revision in the future.
In the first place, there are now four new well accepted therapeutic procedures, venous ligation and section, paralumbar sympathetic procaine block, anticoagulant therapy and sulfonamide drugs. I shall attempt to point out in what type of venous thrombosis each method seems most applicable.
