Department of anesthesiology, Beijing JiShuitan hospital, Beijing 100035, China 【Abstract】 Objective To explore the value of D-dimer (DD) and color doppler ultrasonography on diagnosis of inferior extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in fractured patients. Methods 208 fractured patients with clinically suspected DVT of lower extremity were analyzed retrospectively. 40 of them were checked by contrast venography and color doppler ultrasonography for lower extremity venous and D-dimer assay. Those 40 patients were divided into two groups: group DVT (group T) and group non DVT (group NT) according to the outcome of contrast venography. The results of color doppler ultrasonography and DD were recorded in each group. Results Patient
