Thank you for having these facts brought to our attention. I would agree with you that the sentence "we have coined the term 'thromboneurosis' to describe this syndrome" should read "we and others have coined the term 'thromboneurosis' to describe this syndrome." However, with objective testing the clinician can now have a more rational approach to differentiate thromboneurosis from recurrent deep venous thrombosis.
