Recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) is common. Current guidelines suggest that patients with unprovoked VTE should continue anticoagulants unless they have a high bleeding risk, whereas all others can stop. Prediction models may refine this dichotomous distinction, but existing models apply only to patients with unprovoked first thrombosis. We aimed to develop a prediction model for all patients with first VTE, either provoked or unprovoked.

Several prediction models are available to predict recurrent venous thrombosis (VT) in patients with unprovoked first events.
Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), although rare, is potentially fatal. Few studies have investigated risk factors associated with recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) after a first CVT event of whic...
An important clinical problem in the management of venous thrombosis is to determine whether a patient can safely cease anticoagulant therapy. In this Forum article we summarize the predictive perform...
While determining the incidence of chronic deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and the hypercoagulation profiles of patients who underwent venous stenting for symptomatic venous insufficiency, we assessed the ...
The use of venous duplex ultrasound (VDU) for confirmation of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in neurosurgical patients is costly and requires experienced personnel.
This study evaluates whether treatment with rosuvastatin on top of standard anti-coagulant treatment will decrease the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism and arterial thromboembolic ...
Epidemiological studies have shown a 2-3 fold increased long-term risk of arterial cardiovascular disease after venous thrombosis, most predominant in the first year following initial veno...
This study is a single-arm, phase IV trial, of apixaban as treatment of venous thrombosis in patients with cancer. The current standard treatment of venous thrombosis in cancer patients is...
To investigate the incidence of pre- and early postoperative deep venous thrombosis in patients undergoing hepatobiliopancreatic surgery, as well as potential corresponding risk factors wi...
Venous thrombosis is the development of a blood clot in a vein. Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a painful condition that can develop following a venous thrombosis in one of the deep vein...
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.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CRANIAL SINUSES, large endothelium-lined venous channels situated within the SKULL. Intracranial sinuses, also called cranial venous sinuses, include the superior sagittal, cavernous, lateral, petrous sinuses, and many others. Cranial sinus thrombosis can lead to severe HEADACHE; SEIZURE; and other neurological defects.
The vitamin K-dependent cofactor of activated PROTEIN C. Together with protein C, it inhibits the action of factors VIIIa and Va. A deficiency in protein S; (PROTEIN S DEFICIENCY); can lead to recurrent venous and arterial thrombosis.
Embolism or thrombosis involving blood vessels which supply intracranial structures. Emboli may originate from extracranial or intracranial sources. Thrombosis may occur in arterial or venous structures.
Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
