BACKGROUND We have shown that normal D-dimer levels obtained after the discontinuation of oral anticoagulant treatment (OAT) has a high negative predictive value for recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE). The aim of the present study was to assess the predictive value of D-dimer for recurrent VTE in subjects with a previous unprovoked event who are either carriers of inherited thrombophilia or not. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively evaluated 599 patients (301 males) with a previous VTE… CONTINUE READING
