(4 votes, average: 3.50 out of 5)

Compression stockings, widely used to prevent DVT in patients after stroke, don’t work, according to new research published in Lancet. We’ve got the principal investigator, Martin Dennis of the University of Edinburgh, to talk with about this.

For your part, if you have someone you’d enjoy hearing talk about a bit of research or anything else bordering on the medical, let me know at 1-617-440-4374 or drop me a note at jelia@nejm.org.
