Anemia is a common finding and independent predictor for adverse outcomes in hospitalized patients with medical illness. It remains unclear whether anemia is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism and whether the presence of anemia can refine risk assessment for prediction of venous thromboembolism, thereby adding incremental utility to a validated model.

Venous thromboembolism is a common complication of cancer, but the risk of developing venous thromboembolism varies greatly among individuals and depends on numerous factors, including type of cancer....
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in hospitalized patients with malignancy. Nationwide Inpatient Sample database was analyzed to determine the trends in the rate...
Despite the well-established association between infection and venous thromboembolism (VTE), there are few data specifically assessing the efficacy and safety of the VTE prophylaxis strategies for pat...
Catheter exchange over a guidewire is frequently performed for malfunctioning peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs). Whether such exchanges are associated with venous thromboembolism is not ...
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common and preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. Low molecular weight heparin, low dose unfractionated heparin, fondaparinux and warf...
After reports from observational studies suggesting an association between acutely ill medical patients and venous thromboembolism (VTE), interventional trials with anticoagulants drugs ha...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of dalteparin vs unfractionated heparin for the prevention of VTE (Venous Thromboembolism) in hospitalized acutely ill medic...
Part 1 - Evaluate the real-world implementation of extended prophylaxis with betrixaban in the acutely ill hospitalized medical population Part 2 - Describe patterns of Venous thromboembol...
This multicentre open-label randomized parallel-group trial aims to evaluate the association intermittent pneumatic compression + elastick stockings versus elasting stockings alone on symp...
This study is designed to provide efficacy and safety data for certoparin in the prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in immobilized, acutely ill medical patients.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.
Adolescent hospitalized for short term care.
Child hospitalized for short term care.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
