The efficacy of defibrotide in the treatment of acute thrombophlebitis of the legs has been investigated in 140 patients, randomized into two groups. All patients received defibrotide either alone or as an addition to conventional therapies. Two different schemes of administration were selected and carried out in each group, according to the time of onset of thrombophlebitis. Defibrotide demonstrated a good clinical efficacy in both groups, with a highly significant reduction in those patients receiving defibrotide and conventional therapies. The clinical result were outstanding in two subgroups: extensive thrombophlebitis and brachioaxillary phlebitis.
