Abstract Number: PB2372
Meeting: ISTH 2020 Congress
Background: Scant data are available about the characteristics and optimal treatment of the episode of venous thromboembolism (VTE) occurring in renal transplant (RT) recipients.
Aims: Our study was undertaken to evaluate the characteristics of VTE in RT patients, the type of treatment used in clinical practice and the risk of recurrent VTE.
Methods: We performed a multicentric retrospective observational study among 7 Italian centers. Data were collected in a web based clinical report form with the use of REDCAP system.
Results: 112 patients who received renal transplantation (74 males 64%) and who developed a first episode of VTE after transplantation. Median age (range) at transplantation was 57 (22-76) years. Median time of VTE recurrence from RT was 6 (0.1-213) months; 783% of patients received RT from deceased donor; 10 patients (9.0%) ha kidney and pancreas transplantation. Characteristics of site and type of VTE and treatment of VTE are reported in table 1. During follow-up 84/112 patients stopped anticoagulant treatment. Among them 25 (30%) had recurrent VTE episodes.
Conclusions: We confirm the low rate of pulmonary embolism in RT patients with respect to general population. Instead, RT patients showed a high rate of recurrence accordingly with previous findings.
