OBJECTIVE To assess intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) in the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE). METHODS The authors randomly allocated patients with a documented intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) to elastic stockings (ES) alone or combined with IPC. The primary outcome was a combined criteria assessed at day 10: a symptomatic and(More)

Oral estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) has been reported to induce APC resistance. Little is known about the effect of transdermal estrogen. METHODS AND RESULTS We enrolled 196 postmenopausal women who were randomly allocated(More)
In a meta-analysis of case-control studies, Zhang et al. (2011) found an increased risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTE) in patients exposed to antipsychotics (OR=2.39 [1.71-3.35]). Our updated meta-analysis including the 2 available cohort studies, recognized as a more relevant type of observational study, showed a weaker, but still strong association(More)

Primary prophylaxis with the use of an effective and safe intervention appears the best approach of venous thromboembolism (VTE) management in medical elderly patients, the most affected by VTE. With increasing life expectancy, prevention of VTE, particularly in elderly patients, will arise as a major public health problem. Few well designed clinical trials(More)
Hepcidin regulates serum iron levels, and its dosage is used in differential diagnostic of iron-related pathologies. We used the data collected in the HEPMEN (named after HEPcidin during MENses) study to investigate the joint dynamics of serum hepcidin and iron during the menstrual cycle in healthy women. Ninety menstruating women were recruited after a(More)
