Recently we identified elevated albuminuria as a risk factor for first venous thromboembolism (VTE). The risk of recurrent VTE (rVTE) in patients with elevated albuminuria is unknown, yet is an important issue for their clinical management.
Subjects known with higher albumin levels do not have an increased risk of rVTE. Therefore, prolonged anticoagulant treatment seems not necessary in such patients after first VTE.
