The aim of the study was to assess the quality of life in patients after endovascular prophylaxis (inferior vena cava filter) and PATE conservative (drug) therapy. Materials and Methods. The authors examined efficacy of treatment and assessed the quality of life in 226 patients with deep vein thrombosis, IVC thrombosis, and PATE. All the patients underwent medical treatment at the Ulyanovsk Regional Clinical Hospital in 2006-2016. Patients with IVC filter (n=91) were included in the main group. Experimental group consisted of patients undergoing conservative treatment (n=135). Hospital patients underwent some diagnostic measures, including Doppler ultrasound, X-ray computed tomography, and echocardiography. MOS 36-Item Short Form Health Survey was used to study the effect of long-term complications on the patients' quality of life. Results. The number of complaints per patient was higher in the experimental group (6.67) than in the main group (4.13). However, instrumental research methods showed that IVC filter caused secondary complications in 31.11 % of patients from the main group. In the long-term follow-up, patients from the experimental group rated a number of their health parameters on the mental status scales reliably higher (“social functioning" - 8.1 in the main group and 25.4 in the experimental group, “role-emotional functioning" - 25.3 in the main group and 33.3 in the experimental group, “mental status" - 57.8 in the main group and 70.2 in the experimental group). Conclusion. Despite a greater number of subjective complaints from the patients of the experimental group, the patients of the main group had more long-term complications, which affected patients' quality of life, namely social functioning, role-emotional functioning and mental status.
