Correlation between the severity of chronic inflammatory respiratory disorders and the frequency of venous thromboembolism: meta-analysis
Southwest Journal of Pulmonary and Critical Care
The present study aims to integrate the growing body of evidence on the possible association between the severity of chronic inflammatory respiratory disorders (CIRDs) and the frequency of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Eight studies were analyzed to assess the correlation between the severity of CIRDs and the incidence of VTE. Our results suggest that there is no significant increased risk of VTE in patients with severe CIRD compared to mild or moderate CIRD, OR=0.92 (95% CI 0.59 -1.43; I 2 =doi:10.13175/swjpcc035-17 fatcat:4dt4i73gkfbljkwjhvbznzsoey
