Thrombosis

Thrombotic diseases are one of the main causes of mortality worldwide

 

Thrombotic diseases, with their venous and arterial repercussions, are now one of the world’s leading causes of mortality.

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and its complication, pulmonary embolism

4 million peole affected by deep venous thrombosis

Deep venous thrombosis, also called thrombophlebitis, and its main complication, pulmonary embolism, are the cause of more deaths every year in Europe than breast cancer, prostate cancer, HIV contamination and road accidents combined.

It is estimated that 1.5 million Europeans are affected and over 500,000 of them die annually.

Based on the Assessment of the Incidence of Deep vein thrombosis in Asia (AIDA) study, DVT is a common complication among Asians who underwent major orthopedic surgery of the lower limbs.

Arterial thrombosis or atherothrombosis

Strokes / Heart attack / Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Atherothrombosis is the underlying cause of heart attack and stroke which together represent a third of all deaths. An increase in the number of heart attacks and strokes is expected in the future. Estimates forecast over 20 million deaths in 2020 and over 24 million in 2030. Today, one man in four and one woman in three still die as a result of their first heart attack, even in countries with advanced healthcare systems.
