Predictors and Outcomes of Recurrent Venous Thromboembolism in Elderly Patients

Little is known about predictors and outcomes of recurrent venous thromboembolism in elderly patients. Methods We prospectively followed up 991 patients aged ≥65 years with acute venous thromboembolism in a multicenter Swiss cohort study. The primary outcome was symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism. We explored the association between baseline characteristics and treatments and recurrent venous thromboembolism […]

The Clinical Course of Venous Thromboembolism May Differ According to Cancer Site

We hypothesized that the clinical course of venous thromboembolism in patients with active cancer may differ according to the specificities of primary tumor site. Aim and Methods We used data from RIETE (international registry of patients with venous thromboembolism) to compare the clinical venous thromboembolism-related outcomes during the course of anticoagulation in patients with one […]

Mortality in Elderly Patients with Acute Venous Thromboembolism

  Long-term predictors and causes of death are understudied in elderly patients with acute venous thromboembolism. Methods We prospectively followed up 991 patients aged ≥65 years with acute venous thromboembolism in a multicenter Swiss cohort study. The primary outcome was overall mortality. We explored the association between patient baseline characteristics and mortality, adjusting for other […]
