Answer

Findings of acute VTE on physical examination are discussed in topics elsewhere (see Further Reading). Deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremity may be complicated by postthrombotic syndrome, a chronic condition associated with swelling, pain, discoloration, and venous insufficiency of the lower extremity.
