Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter looks at the epidemiology or health-event patterns associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE). It explains that VTE, comprising deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a multifactorial disease, involving interactions between environmental exposures and genetic predispositions. It investigates the disease burden or incidence, outcomes, and risk factors of VTE in the community, the elderly population, and in individuals with advanced diseases.
