A community-wide study was conducted in 16 short-stay hospitals in metropolitan Worcester, Mass, to examine the incidence and case-fatality rates of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in patients hospitalized between July 1, 1985, and December 31, 1986. The average annual incidence of deep vein thrombosis alone was 48 per 100,000, while the incidence of pulmonary embolism with or without deep vein thrombosis was 23 per 100,000. The incidence rates of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary… Expand

Trends in the incidence of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: a 25-year population-based study.
TLDR
The incidence of pulmonary embolism has decreased over time, the incidence of deep vein thrombosis remains unchanged for men and is increasing for older women, and the need for more accurate identification of patients at risk for venous thromboembolism is emphasized. Expand
Incidence of and mortality from venous thromboembolism in a real-world population: the Q-VTE Study Cohort.
TLDR
The risk of venous thromboembolism in the general population remains high, and mortality, especially in cancer patients with venous Thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is substantial. Expand
Trends in the Incidence of Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism
TLDR
The incidence of pulmonary embolism was approximately 45% lower during the last 15 years of the study for both sexes and all age strata, while the incidence of deep vein thrombosis remained constant for males across all agestrata, decreased for females younger than 55 years, and increased for women older than 60 years. Expand
Incidence of venous thromboembolism in hospitalized patients vs community residents.
TLDR
The incidence of venous thromboembolism rose markedly with increasing age for both groups, with PE accounting for most of the age-related increase among in-hospital cases. Expand
Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in the general population. 'The Study of Men Born in 1913'.
TLDR
A high incidence of DVT and PE in the general population is indicated, and the rate of fatal PE seems to be higher than estimated before, and PE constitutes almost 5% of all deaths during follow-up. Expand
Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in two cohorts: the longitudinal investigation of thromboembolism etiology.
TLDR
The incidence of venous thromboembolism in this cohort of middle- and older-aged subjects was similar to that observed in more geographically homogeneous samples, and short-term mortality and 2-year recurrence rates were appreciable, especially among subjects with cancer. Expand
Deep vein thrombosis in elderly patients hospitalized in subacute care facilities: a multicenter cross-sectional study of risk factors, prophylaxis, and prevalence.
TLDR
The prevalence of deep venous thrombosis is high in elderly patients hospitalized in subacute care settings, despite wide use of prophylaxis, and further prospective studies assessing the clinical benefit of extended duration proPHylaxis are needed. Expand
Risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: a population-based case-control study.
TLDR
Hospital or nursing home confinement, surgery, trauma, malignant neoplasm, chemotherapy, neurologic disease with paresis, central venous catheter or pacemaker, varicose veins, and superficial vein thrombosis are independent and important risk factors for VTE. Expand
Predictors of survival after deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: a population-based, cohort study.
TLDR
Survival after VTE, and especially after PE+/-DVT, is much worse than reported, and significantly less than expected survival, implying that treatment for the 2 disorders should be different. Expand
The epidemiology of diagnosed pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis in the elderly.
TLDR
Current treatment patterns appear to be effective in preventing both PE after treatment for DVT and recurrence of PE, suggesting the need to understand the role of associated conditions as well as the indications for prophylaxis and the methods of treatment. Expand

TLDR
Evidence suggest the possibility that both the incidence rate and the case-fatality rate for pulmonary embolism have decreased in the hospital population studied, from 1966 through 1980. Expand

TLDR
In spite of the growing awareness of thromboembolism this disease remains a constant source of unpleasant surprises and the clinical diagnosis of incipient or even advanced venous thrombosis in the lower extremities is often impossible. Expand
