INCIDENCE AND RISK FACTORS FOR DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS IN AN UNIVERSITARY HOSPITAL
Objetives: Evaluate patients profile admitted with suspected venous thromboembolism of an university hospital from August/2015 to July/2016 and describe the therapeutic used. Methods: 42 patients was admitted with clinic suspected and verifying their confirmation by complementary exams. Epidemiological profile and treatment was analyzed. Results: 20 patients with diagnose confirmation formed group A, and group B by 22 patients without confirmation. Group A had 51,65 years old average, being half female. Obesity was most common risk factor (30%) on this group followed by varicose veins and infection (25%). The most frequent treatment observed was low molecular weight heparin plus warfarin (55%). Conclusion: It´s needed to make a prospective study about risk factors to take out some bias about lack of active research and failure in recording data. It´s important to extend the number of patients in the study and develop a protocol to standardize diagnose and treatment at this service.
