Abstract

Data estimating the annual incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in France, taking into account both hospital and community settings, are very lacking. This study aimed to estimate the annual incidence of VTE (pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)) in France in 2011 in "real world" population. This was a longitudinal insurance claims study of the incidence of VTE in France over 2 years (2010 and 2011). The data analysis was performed using the EGB (Echantillon Généraliste des Bénéficiaires) database, a randomly selected sample of the French national insurance database (CNAMTS) which covers 77 % of the population. All adult patients experiencing a VTE event during the study period were analysed. Recurrence rate of VTE and all-cause mortality rate were also estimated over a 12-month follow-up period. The estimated annual incidence of VTE in France was 184.0 per 100 000 subjects, corresponding to a total of 119 670 events countrywide. The estimated incidence of DVT and PE were respectively 119.8 and 64.2 per 100 000 subjects. Annual recurrence of VTE was reported in 5.5 % (n = 99) patients, with a significantly higher recurrence rate in patients with PE than those with DVT (p = 0.02). Overall, 6.2 % (n = 112) of patients had died over the 12-month follow-up (respectively 10.2 and 7.7 % of patients with DVT and PE). To our knowledge, this analysis is the first to estimate the annual incidence of VTE in France using exhaustive data from the EGB database. This has allowed the incidence of DVT in the community to be documented, which to date has not been characterised. Previous studies in France have been limited to the hospital setting and have yielded incidence rates comparable to ours. This analysis is the first to estimate the annual incidence of VTE in France using exhaustive data from the EGB database. This study showed that the incidence and the burden of the disease remains elevated.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 February 2016.
All research outputs
#1,530,570
of 7,289,383 outputs
Outputs from Thrombosis Journal
#24
of 79 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#77,070
of 284,437 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Thrombosis Journal
#2
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,289,383 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 78th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 79 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 284,437 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
