Why are research studies important and how do they benefit people?
Carefully evaluating patients who are treated in research studies is the best way for doctors to learn what the best treatments are for patients with post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) and other medical conditions. The C-TRACT Study is comparing two treatment strategies for PTS to determine which is best. If we get the answer from this study, doctors will be better able to help the many thousands of people who develop PTS each year.
