1. In this case-crossover study, use of therapeutic testosterone supplementation in men was linked with an increased short-term risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). 2. Associated risk of VTE with testosterone therapy was demonstrated in men with and without demonstrated hypogonadism, with a trend towards increased risk of VTE in men...
With the large and growing population of cancer survivors over the last several decades, there exists significant concern that these patients may be at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, few studies have examined risks of multiple specific outcomes of cardiovascular disease in survivors of a wide range...
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is common following major trauma. While delay in thromboprophylaxis initiation by more than 1 to 3 days is associated with a significantly increased risk of VTE and mortality, prophylaxis is also associated with an increased risk of progressive hematoma enlargement in the setting of traumatic brain...
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), often prescribed to women during menopause, has been shown to increase the risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). However, the effects of different types of HRT preparations on the risk of VTE have not been thoroughly investigated. This case-control study enrolled women between the ages of...
An Evaluation of the Effects of Lowering Blood Alcohol Concentration Limits for Drivers on the Rates of Road Traffic Accidents and Alcohol Consumption: A Natural Experiment Individuals that drive while under the influence of alcohol are at an increased risk of being involved in traffic accidents, contributing to the morbidity...
Apixaban to Prevent Venous Thromboembolism in Patients with Cancer The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is significantly increased in patients with active cancer. While parenteral prophylactic anticoagulation has been shown to reduce the risk of VTE in cancer patients, its use is associated with an increased risk of major bleeding...
1. Transgender women had higher rates of venous thrombotic events (VTE) with cross-sex hormones. 2. Similar rates of ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction were found among cisgender and transgender persons. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Acute cardiovascular events are an important area of research with respect to transgender health and...
1. In this case-control study, patients with varicose veins were at higher risk of deep vein thromboses (DVTs), pulmonary embolisms (PEs), and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). 2. Varicose veins inferred a greater increase in risk in younger patients for DVT and PAD, and men with varicose veins were at higher...
1. Patients initially treated with rivaroxaban following total knee or hip arthroplasty experienced similar rates of venous thromboembolism (VTE) regardless of continued rivaroxaban use or switching to aspirin for extended VTE prophylaxis. 2. No significant difference in rates of major bleeding complications was observed between aspirin and rivaroxaban treated groups. Evidence...
1. In this multicenter, randomized controlled study, the Pulmonary Embolism Rule-out Criteria (PERC) was not associated with an inferior rate of diagnosing thromboembolic events in low risk patients compared to care as usual. 2. The PERC strategy resulted in significantly fewer uses of CT pulmonary angiography, reduced ED length of...
