includes both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and is the second leading cause of death in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.
In women, too, the early elevated VTE
risk was halved by 2 months out, but thereafter the rate of decline in VTE
The EINSTEIN CHOICE study evaluated patients with VTE
who were already treated with six to 12 months of initial anticoagulation therapy and then received Xarelto 10 mg once daily, Xarelto 20 mg once daily or aspirin 100 mg once daily for up to an additional 12 months of treatment.
The risk of suffering from VTE
increased significantly with every inch that is added to a person's height, irrespective of gender.
Conclusion: Risk assessment and administration of prevention methods can considerably reduce the risks of patients developing VTE
thus enhancing patient safety and quality of care provided by the healthcare sector.
Researches on VTE
have been remarkable advanced, especially in the field of clinical study.
The findings from Einstein Choice demonstrate the benefit of prescribing rivaroxaban for the extended treatment of VTE
," he added.
This indicates that hormonal contraceptive use did not make a clinically important difference in the rate of VTE
Individual risk assessment was done and VTE
prophylaxis given was recorded and then compared with the Caprini's VTE
risk assessment and suggested prophylaxis.
In brief, the investigators analyzed data from the Copenhagen City Heart Study and the Copenhagen General Population Study to evaluate whether increased concentrations of rheumatoid factor, an antibody directed against the Fc portion of IgG, increased the risk of VTE
in individuals without overt autoimmune disease.
Despite evidence of the benefits of VTE
prophylaxis, studies of clinical practices worldwide suggest that VTE
prophylaxis is underutilised, and implementation of guidelines formulated by the ACCP is inconsistent and inadequate.
SNP rs10380 has been examined for its role in various types of cancers and cardiovascular defects, but has not been researched in terms of its potential role as a risk factor for VTE
