Guidelines for Anticoagulation Therapy for Secondary Prevention After Deep Vein Thrombosis

Recurrence Rate

Slide 8

June 2011

When trying to ascertain how long to treat patients with idiopathic venous thrombotic events, the first thing I like to share with patients is the anticipated recurrence rate or natural history and what you can tell them what the ten year risk of recurrence will be. After an idiopathic thrombotic event, the 10-year risk of recurrence is about 30 percent as shown on this slide.
