The study focussed on young populations with presumably no or few comorbidities. Incidentally, none had a history of previous PEs or DVTs.

Wondering what your thoughts are of patient populations with increased risk factors. Populations for instance over the age of 60 (which forms the bulk of patients we see in general medicine), those previous strokes/IHD or pregnant patients, young women on the oral contraceptive pill etc. Would a significant end point would be more likely in these groups?
