In a recent placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial aspirin (100 mg once daily) was found to reduce by approximately 40% the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients after a first episode of acute unprovoked deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE) who had completed a 6-to-18 month period of conventional anticoagulation [1]. As patients with symptomatic atherosclerosis were excluded from the study, whether these findings also apply to this category of patients is uncertain. We had the opportunity to retrieve information from a large cohort of patients with VTE, with and without symptomatic atherosclerosis, who had a long-term follow-up after their thrombotic episode [2]. Below is a report of our findings. © 2012 International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
