Venous thromboembolism treatment duration in autoimmune diseases. Research trends

Published:October 26, 2021DOI:


      • Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common event among autoimmune diseases.
      • Recurrent VTE is known to be increased on these patients after treatment discontinuation.
      • VTE treatment duration in autoimmune diseases is currently on investigation.
      • Randomized trials are lacking and observational registries provide the best available evidence so far.
