STOP Leg Clots

STOP Leg Clots - an international multicenter study to investigate if the addition of mechanical thromboprophylaxis via intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) during lower leg immobilization after Achilles tendon rupture or ankle fracture can reduce the risk of blood clot formation and stimulate healing. We have achieved a large intermediate goal in the study by including 500 patients but we still have many left to include.
