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 events in patients with previous deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

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...
The SAVER pilot is a randomized, open-label pilot study to determine the feasibility of recruitment. In addition to feasibility data, the investigators will carefully collect clinical data...
The objective of the study is to demonstrate the superiority of the mesoglycan (Prisma®), compared to placebo, in reducing the incidence of thromboembolic complications (relapse / extensi...
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...
Observational studies indicate that statins reduce the risk of recurrent venous thrombosis (VT). However, trials have not been performed and the mechanism is unknown. We aimed to determine whether sta...
Epidural venous thrombosis is a rare clinical entity with a characteristic constellation of findings in contrast-enhanced MRI, which should be considered in the differential diagnosis in the case of c...
Venous malformations (VMs) are ubiquitous, low-flow vascular anomalies known to be occasionally painful due to thrombotic episodes within the lesion. The prevalence of superficial or deep vein thrombo...
Cancer is an established risk factor for leg vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Controlled studies assessing the risk of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) in patients with cancer have not been per...
The association between lower-extremity venous thrombosis and cancer is well-established. However, the extent to which upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis (U-DVT) is a marker of cancer and a progno...
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.
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.
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.
A platelet-specific protein which is released when platelets aggregate. Elevated plasma levels have been reported after deep venous thrombosis, pre-eclampsia, myocardial infarction with mural thrombosis, and myeloproliferative disorders. Measurement of beta-thromboglobulin in biological fluids by radioimmunoassay is used for the diagnosis and assessment of progress of thromboembolic disorders.
The formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) within a vein.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
