The rate of VTE during the 28 days after hospital discharge was more than six-fold higher compared with non-hospitalized women (676/100,000 person-years, adjusted incidence rate ratio 6.27, 95% CI 3.74-10.5). The VTE rate during and after hospital admission combined was highest among women in their third trimester (961/100,000 person years, adjusted incidence rate ratio 5.57, 95% CI 3.32-9.34). There was a four-fold increase in VTE risk among women whose hospital stay was less than 3 days (adjusted incidence rate ratio 4.05, 95% CI 2.23-7.38). “When we restricted our analysis to women without medical comorbidities or recognized risk factors for VTE we still found that their risk was higher, especially if they were hospitalized for more than 3 days or were older or hospitalized in their third trimester,” Sultan said. He added that one message from the study is that all pregnant women should be assessed for VTE risk when they are hospitalized during pregnancy, as well as when they are discharged.

We would love better data. This provides some background data to say this should be looked into further. Lieberman said the small number of participants lowered the impact of the results. A drop of 10 percent to 12 percent [in children’s allergy rates] is meaningful, but is not statistically significant, he said. But I would call that clinically significant. The study is scheduled to be presented Friday at the annual meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) in Baltimore.
