    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Bakgrund Trots att venös blodpropp (venös tromboembolism [VTE]) är en viktig orsak till sjuklighet och dödlighet är data ofullständiga gällande dess förekomst och bakomliggande riskfaktorer hos oselekterade patienter. I begreppet VTE inkluderas blodproppar i benets djupa ådror (djup ventrombos [DVT]) och i lungorna (lungemboli [LE]). READ MORE
