The aim of the present work was to study real embologenicity of throboses of lower extremity veins. We carried out a comparative evaluation of the embologenic risk of different thromboses of the superficial and deep veins associated with hospital treatment. The study performed allows the following conclusions to be drawn: venous thromboses in the system of the inferior vena cava are marked by an unpredictable course and require the follow up of the thrombotic process and active conservative treatment within the period not less than 7 days from the time of the first manifestations of thrombosis; thrombosis of the femoral vein as well as thrombosis of the sural veins have the highest embologenic risk (6.45 and 6.25%, respectively). Patients with ascending thrombophlebitis of the greater saphenous vein remain at high risk for embologenic process and require urgent operation.

KEY WORDS: thromboses of lower extremity veins, ascending thrombophlebitis of greater saphenous vein, pulmonary thromboembolism.
