The relationship between vitamin D status and idiopathic lower-extremity deep vein thrombosis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Vitamin D has been shown to have an anticoagulant effect. A decrease in 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentration has also been associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism.
