Background and Objective: Venous thromboembolism is one of the major causes of mortality worldwide. Various environmental and genetic factors are known as risk factors for this disease. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the frequency of risk factors in patients with venous thromboembolism admitted to Ekbatan and Farshchian hospitals in Hamadan from 2012 to 2017.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study investigated all patients with venous thromboembolism who had medical records regarding risk factors of venous thromboembolism using census sampling method. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS software (Version 21).
Results: According to the results, out of 226 patients under study, 116 (51.3%) ones were male. Moreover, 103 (45.6%), 76 (33.6%), and 47 (20.8%) patients had deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and severe lung embolism with deep venous thrombosis, respectively. The mean±SD age of patients was 59.15±19.85 years. Moreover, the most frequent risk factors associated with venous thromboembolism include the history of hypertension (37.2%), recent hospitalization (29.6%), cardiovascular problems (27.5%), history of recent surgery (16.8%), history of intravenous thromboembolism (8.8% 16%), history of smoking (16.8%), statin use (15.5%), history of hyperlipidemia (13.7%), and catheterization (13.7%).
Conclusion: Venous thromboembolism is a multifactorial disease in which some risk factors contribute to the increased risk of it directly and indirectly.
