Article shows Venous thromboembolism risk as high as 35% per year in some amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients . . .

Improved ventilation may show decreased risk . . . although there could be linkage with the treatment critical authors showed none and decrease is statistical plausibility . . . they have long been concern of care providers, far longer than diaphragm pacer was available . . . the best medians achieved so far in clinical study groups are of pacing patients. :Ponder:
