Long-term risk of venous thromboembolism after a symptomatic arterial event in an elderly population
 
Introduction:
The concept of venous and arterial thrombosis as two separate entities has been challenged over the last years (Prandoni 2009). Evidence from basic studies demonstrates shared pathological pathways (i.e.: endothelial dysfunction or injury, increased in coagulation factor levels, inflammation) (Mari 2008, Tsai 2002, Tofler 2005), while data from clinical studies show some common clinical risk factors (i.e.: age, obesity, smoking) (Mi 2016) and therapeutic efficacy with the same antithrombotic agents (Becattini 2012).
