Air travel and the risk of deep vein thrombosis
Background: The magnitude of the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) following air travel has been difficult to resolve due to a lack of adequate data. We determine the association more precisely by using a large dataset and an improved method of analysis. Method: Data on air-t ravel history for each of 5, 196 patients hospitalised for VTE in Western Australia from 1981 to 1999 is analysed using a log-linear regression model for the probability that a flight triggers VTE and for the baseline...[Show more]
