The relationship between smoking and venous thromboembolism (VTE) is unclear, as a result we conducted a meta-analysis to assess the association between smoking and VTE. A comprehensive search was conducted to identify studies evaluating the relationship between smoking and VTE. Two reviewers independently selected studies and extracted data. The data were analyzed using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software, version 2. Twenty-one studies were included. Our findings show current smoking (RR 1.24… 

Low incidence of venous thromboembolism in inflammatory bowel diseases: prevalence and predictors from a population-based inception cohort

The incidence of VTE was lower than previously reported in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases and in UC it was associated with extensive disease, fulminant episodes, corticosteroids-requiring disease and smoking, but not with age at onset.

Risk of Venous Thromboembolism Among Patients with Atopic Dermatitis: A Cohort Study in a US Administrative Claims Database

AD was not an independent risk factor for VTE, and the risk of VTE among patients with AD was low, which is particularly relevant as advanced therapies for the treatment of moderate to severe AD become available.

Venous Thromboembolism in Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Added Effect of Disease Activity to Traditional Risk Factors

This review aims at reviewing the risk of VTE in RA and the role of traditional risk factors and disease-related inflammation and develops a conceptual framework that describes the interaction between these factors.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Smoking as a Risk Factor for Venous Thromboembolism Events: Review of the Literature on the Common Pathophysiological Mechanisms

Venous thromboembolism events (VTE) are a common and preventable cause of postoperative complications. Interestingly, smoking and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) affecting a large part of our

Gender Differences in Risk Factor Profile and Clinical Characteristics in 89 Consecutive Cases of Cerebral Venous Thrombosis

CVT is a multifactorial disorder that has a broad spectrum of risk factors with important gender-related differences in clinical manifestation and prognosis, and female patients, especially those with hormone-related risk factors, have a more favorable outcome than male patients.

Cardiovascular fitness in young males and risk of unprovoked venous thromboembolism in adulthood

Cardiovascular fitness estimated with Wmax and adjusted for BMI was associated with reduced risk for VTE and the association was weaker over time and also when examining discordant first cousins and full-sibling pairs.

Low dose oestrogen combined oral contraception and risk of pulmonary embolism, stroke, and myocardial infarction in five million French women: cohort study

For the same type of progestogen, an oestrogen dose of 20 µg versus 30-40 µg was associated with lower risks of pulmonary embolism, ischaemic stroke, and myocardial infarction, and for the same dose of oestrogens, desogestrel and gestodene were associated with statistically significantly higher risks than levonorgestrel.

Polymorphisms in PARK2 and MRPL37 are associated with higher risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism in a sex-specific manner

Polymorphisms in nuclear genome regulating mtDNA together with FVL may be promising biomarkers for predicting VTE recurrence in a sex specific manner.

Tobacco smoking and risk of 36 cardiovascular disease subtypes: fatal and non-fatal outcomes in a large prospective Australian study

Current smoking increases the risk of virtually all CVD subtypes, at least doubling the risk for many, including AMI, cerebrovascular disease and heart failure, including paroxysmal tachycardia.



Cardiovascular risk factors and venous thromboembolism incidence: the longitudinal investigation of thromboembolism etiology.

The data showing no relationship of some arterial risk factors with VTE corroborate the view that the etiology of VTE differs from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and suggest a hypothesis that avoidance of obesity and diabetes or vigilance in prophylaxis in patients with those conditions may prevent some venous thromboses.

Cardiovascular Risk Factors and Venous Thromboembolism: A Meta-Analysis

Cardiovascular risk factors are associated with venous thromboembolism and this association is clinically relevant with respect to individual screening, risk factor modification, and primary and secondary prevention of VTE.

Smoking, Surgery, and Venous Thromboembolism Risk in Women: United Kingdom Cohort Study

Venous thromboembolism incidence was increased in current smokers, both in the absence of surgery and in the 12 weeks after surgery, in a large prospective study of women in the United Kingdom.

The relationship between lifestyle factors and venous thromboembolism among women: a report from the MISS study

Women non‐smokers who were physically active and who consumed alcohol in moderation were at a lower risk of VTE and physical exercise, smoking habits, and alcohol consumption, compared to women who consumed little or no alcohol or lived a sedentary life.

Smoking increases the risk of venous thrombosis and acts synergistically with oral contraceptive use

Smoking appears to be a risk factor for venous thrombosis with the greatest relative effect among young women using oral contraceptive use and the factor V Leiden mutation.

Correlates and consequences of venous thromboembolism: The Iowa Women's Health Study.

Risks of venous thromboembolism in women were elevated among women who were smokers, physically inactive, overweight, and diabetic, indicating that lifestyle contributes to VTE risk.

The association of smoking with venous thrombosis in women. A population-based, case-control study.

The results do not support a direct biological effect of smoking on the risk ofVT that is clinically relevant, and the modestly increased risk of VT in women who are current or former smokers might be explained by the occurrence of smoking-related diseases and decreased physical activity.

Risk Factors for Venous Thromboembolism: Results From the Copenhagen City Heart Study

Obesity and smoking were both found to be important risk factors for VTE whereas total/high-density lipoprotein/low-densitylipoprotein cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, and diabetes mellitus were not.
