VTE at a glance ...
Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) is a condition where a blood clot (thrombus) forms inside a vein. It mainly affects larger veins in the thighs and lower legs (deep vein thrombosis or DVT) but can also involve other veins in the body. In some cases, pieces of a blood clot can break off and move through the blood stream. When a clot breaks off, it is called an embolism. An embolism in the lungs (pulmonary embolism or PE), is a serious condition and can be fatal if not treated quickly.

The information collected in the VTE Cohort Study Database will provide an important resource for people who develop a VTE, for clinicians who will treat VTE and our community. By collecting this data, we will be able to better define the incidence, natural history and clinical outcomes of VTE. There will be more information on the range of therapeutic strategies being employed in the treatment of VTE and better defined optimal management of VTE patients.
