A G20210A transition in the prothrombin gene is a common risk factor of venous thrombosis. The risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism in carriers of the 20210A allele is unknown and guidelines for secondary thromboprophylaxis in these patients are not available. In a prospective multicenter trial, 492 patients with a history of objectively documented venous thromboembolism were followed for a mean observation time of 24+/-16 months after discontinuation of oral anticoagulants.
