This cohort study compares risk for proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism after incident isolated calf DVT in patients treated vs not treated with anticoagulation.
This cohort study compares the incidence of venous thromboembolism after trauma in patients whose enoxaparin dose was adjusted vs not adjusted using anti–factor Xa trough levels.
This cohort study evaluates associations between Caprini venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk scores and VTE incidence among patients in a surgical intensive care unit.

Haut et al examine the comparative effectiveness of prophylactic inferior vena cava filters in trauma patients using meta-analysis to determine whether the filters prevented pulmonary embolism (PE), fatal PE, and mortality.
