Abstract

Essentials Few data exist on outcome of upper extremity deep and superficial vein thrombosis (UEDVT and UESVT). We followed 102 and 55 patients with UEDVT or UESVT, respectively, for a median of 3.5 years. Risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism was low in both diseases, and the mortality high. Postthrombotic symptoms were infrequent and cancer patients had a higher risk of recurrent VTE.
