Abstract
Aim: To detect the prevalence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in Sudanese patients with lower
limb fractures.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional prospective study included 176 patients (47 Females and
129Males; mean age of 49.8 years) they were admitted to the diagnostic imaging department of Ribat
University Hospital for evaluation of fractured lower limb to exclude DVT. SONOLINE ultrasound machine
(Model G-60S; Siemens Medical Solutions, United State of America) was used. The analysis of the data was
performed with the Statistical Package of Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, Illinois,
USA)
Results: This study included 176 fractured lower limb patients, 129 males and 47 females the DVT was found
in 22 patients which represents 12.5%.The high percentage of DVT was noted in patients with periacetabular
fractures (n=10) (13.7%), patients with femur fractures (n=5) (20%), fractured diabetic patients (n=5) (29.4%),
fractured hypertensive patients (n=4) (28.6%), patients with traditional bone setter (TBS) fixation (n=3)
(42.9%) and patients having multiple fractures (n=3) (23%).
Conclusion: The incidence of DVT among fractured Sudanese patients was high (12.5%) even they were used
prophylaxis. Peri-acetabulum & femur fractures, diabetic patients, hypertensive patients, and traditional bone
setter are risk factors that can raise the probability of lower limb DVT.

Key words: Lower limb, Ultrasound, incidence, Fracture, DVT
