The risk of pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis (VTE) in systemic sclerosis (SSc): A general population-based study.

 

SSc patients are at a substantially increased risk of VTE and so increased monitoring for this potentially fatal outcome and its modifiable risk factors is warranted. PubMed, Arthritis Care & Research, 07/28/2015. (Also see Antiphospholipid Syndrome)
