It has been estimated that venous thromboembolism (VTE), including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, occurs in 17 cases per 100,000 patients in the general population every year. Age (especially age >70 years), comorbid conditions (malignancy, history of VTE, pregnancy, and congestive heart failure), reduced mobility, and recent surgery or trauma increase the risk of VTE.
