Finnish term or phrase: tromboosin jälkitila la.
From a medical patient record, concerning phlebitis:

"
Dg [= diagnoosi?]: V. saphena parvan tromboosin jälkitila la.

[DD.MM.YYYY] aikoihin la. akuutti turvotus molempiin alaraajoihin terveellä miehellä.
"

Elsewhere in the text:


180.0 Status post thrombophlebitis VSP l.a.


What do ”la” and ”l.a.” stand for here?

Are they the same abbreviation?

[NB: I'm not sure that l.a. isn't actually ”I.a.”, with capital I – the lettering is ambiguous in the original.]

Thanks

English translation:post-thrombosis, bilateral
Explanation:
l.a. (Latin) = ambilateral, bilateral (molemminpuolinen in Finnish). My suspicion is that in your text both la. and l.a. mean the same (correct abbreviation is l.a.)

Dg = diagnosis

btw, the latter ICD diagnosis code is more likely to be I80.0: Phlebitis and thrombophlebitis of superficial vessels of lower extremities.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks. Doctors in Finland (and some other European countries) seem to be quite the Latin experts. :) Also, you're right about "I80" -- I checked the original .pdf of this file and it seems there was a scanning mistake there.
