Previous studies have shown an increased relative risk of arterial thrombosis after venous thrombosis, although absolute risks are still unknown. Previous studies have shown a mild relation between arterial thrombotic risk factors and venous thrombosis.
Patients with venous thrombosis have a high absolute risk of subsequent arterial thrombosis. This risk could not be explained by the presence of arterial thrombotic risk factors.
