Association of Low Hemoglobin with Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism in Acutely Ill Hospitalized Medical Patients: an APEX Trial Substudy.

Summary of "Association of Low Hemoglobin with Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism in Acutely Ill Hospitalized Medical Patients: an APEX Trial Substudy."

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.

Risk assessment of venous thromboembolism and thromboprophylaxis in pregnant women hospitalized with cancer: Preliminary results from a risk score.

Hospitalized patients with cancer are at high risk of developing venous thromboembolism, and the risk increases with pregnancy. The aim of this study was to apply a thromboprophylaxis protocol with a ...

Association of infections and venous thromboembolism in hospitalized children with nephrotic syndrome.

Nephrotic syndrome (NS) results in hypercoagulability and increased risk of infection. Furthermore, infection increases the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Our objective was to determine the pre...

Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism after Non-Operatively Treated Foot or Ankle Injury.

The purpose was to assess the incidence and risk factors associated with symptomatic venous thromboembolism in patients undergoing below knee immobilization for non-operative foot or ankle injury. We ...

Impact of Anticoagulant Choice on Hospitalized Bleeding Risk when Treating Cancer-Associated Venous Thromboembolism.

Direct acting oral anticoagulants (DOAC) are associated with less bleeding than traditional venous thromboembolism (VTE) treatments in the general population but are little studied in cancer-associate...

A clinical prediction model for cancer-associated venous thromboembolism: a development and validation study in two independent prospective cohorts.

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....

This study is designed to provide efficacy and safety data for certoparin in the prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in immobilized, acutely ill medical patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Products of non-enzymatic reactions between GLUCOSE and HEMOGLOBIN A, occurring as a minor fraction of the hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes. Hemoglobin A1c is hemoglobin A with glucose covalently bound to the terminal VALINE of the beta chain. Glycated hemoglobin A is used as an index of the average blood sugar level over a lifetime of erythrocytes.
