|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03805672|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Terminated due to low enrollment because of decrease in DVT rates.)

Hospitalized patients are at risk of developing blood clots in the legs (Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT), which can lead to death if those clots break off and migrate to the lungs. We know that if there is a blood clot in the large leg veins near the hips and in the thighs, treating these patients with high-doses of blood thinners reduces the risk of these deaths.
It is unclear if treating blood clots in the calf with high doses of blood thinners is better than using low doses. In this study, after being diagnosed with a blood clot in the calf, patients will be treated with either low dose or high dose enoxaparin (Lovenox), a blood thinner. We will then see if low dose blood thinner has similar results as high dose blood thinner.
