Abstract

The prevalence of major risk factors for VTE may differ according to age, gender and clinical presentation. We tested this hypothesis in a large Italian VTE population. MASTER is a multicenter registry aimed to prospectively collect information on a large cohort of patients with acute VTE. The presence of major risk factors was captured by an electronic data network in consecutive patients with objectively confirmed acute VTE. We enrolled 2,119 patients (49.8% men) of whom 424 (20%) 80 years. The prevalence of known risk factors in the four age groups is 63.9, 52.6, 54.6, and 58.3%, respectively (p = 0.002). Immobilization and severe medical disorders are more commonly associated with VTE in patients >80 years, trauma is significantly more common in patients
