The prognosis after venous thrombosis is dependent upon cause:

  • primary thrombosis - prognosis is likely to be poor since the condition has developed as a complication of a generally serious pre-existing condition.

  • secondary thrombosis - there may be some residual disability, including epilepsy. The outlook has improved tremendously with advances such as antibiotics for infective thrombophlebitis.
