This association has been recently questioned, and it is not known whether this simply reflects the severity of proteinuria. To better understand the relationship between histologic diagnosis and the risk of venous thromboembolic events we evaluated patients in the Toronto Glomerulonephritis Registry. Of 1313 patients with idiopathic glomerulonephritis, 395 were diagnosed with membranous… CONTINUE READING
