analysis of primary endpoint (cumulative incidence of PTS) amongst patients responding to the definition of observance for compression scheduled by randomisation. It means a per protocol analysis. The per protocol analysis defined as follow : patients ideally compliant (see next secondary outcome measure with self declaration of compression carrying superior or equal to 80 % especially)and patients with respect to randomisation.

|Elastic Compression Stockings for Prevention of Post-thrombotic Syndrome
|Evaluation of the Efficacy of Elastic Compression in Preventing Post-thrombotic Syndrome. Randomised Non-inferiority Study for Ankle Pressure Targeted at 25 mm Hg Versus 35 mm Hg
Post thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a frequent and burdensome complication of proximal deep-vein thrombosis.Therapeutic options for PTS are limited and mainly rely on its prevention. Therapeutic trials evidenced that elastic compression stockings (ECS) applying 30-40mmHg of pressure at the ankle reduced the rate of PTS by 50%. Although ECS are unlikely to cause harm, in clinical practice, compliance to this treatment appears to be low as ECS may be difficult to apply and to wear.
ECS with a lighter compression strength (20-30mmHg) might be easier to apply and be more comfortable. This could favor a better compliance.
CELEST is a randomized, multicentre, double-blind trial which aims to determine whether ECS applying 25mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle are non inferior to ECS applying 35mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle
CELEST trial is a controlled, randomized, multicentre, non-inferiority double-blind trial which aims to determine whether ECS applying 25mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle are non inferior to ECS applying 35mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle. Patients with a first acute symptomatic proximal DVT will be randomized to wear for two years either ECS applying 25mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle or ECS applying 35mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle. All patients will be prescribed anticoagulants for at least three months. The primary outcome will be the rate of PTS assessed with the Villalta scale in both arms of the study during the 2 years study period. Rate of compliance,severity of PTS and quality of life in both groups will constitute the main secondary outcomes.
