ANDRES, Facundo De et al. Cohort study of pacients with venous thromboembolic disease assisted in ambulatory care. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2017, vol.2, n.2, pp.29-32. ISSN 2393-6797.

Venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) is a condition with high rates of morbidity and mortality. The etiologic diagnosis and therapeutics are in a continuous review process. In our country there are still no epidemiologic studies about the clinic presentation, etiology and recurrence of VTD. This is a cohort study of patients assisted in ambulatory care at the Thrombosis and Haemostasis Clinic of the Hospital Pasteur in Montevideo, for the 2015-2016 period. 35 patients were registered with VTD. Provoked VTD was associated with major risk factors in which optimal prescription of thromboprofilaxis failed. In patients with unprovoked VTD, testing for trombophiliashowed Antitrombin deficiency, hetrocigotic mutation of the Protrombin and antiphospholipid antibodies. Patients with unprovoked VTD showed a high percentage of recurrences, half of them with associated trombophilia and the otherhalf with no risk factor (idiopatic VTD).
