VTE Risk Factors
The cause of thrombosis is unknown in half of all cases
Although in half of the cases of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism physicians don’t know the reason for a blood clot or for its travel to the lungs, medical-scientific advances have made it possible to recognize risk factors that can trigger a venous thromboembolic disease.
The main causes predisposing a blood thrombosis inside the veins are as follows:
- surgery or trauma
- prolonged rest (four days or more) in bed, inactivity (sitting a long time in a car or on a plane) or immobilization because of of a splint or a plaster on a limb
- pregnancy, postpartum and hormone therapy (estrogens)
- congenital predisposition to thrombosis (thrombophilia)
- extended trips
