By conducting a retrospective cohort study of all patients with vertebral fractures in the American College of Surgeons National Trauma Data Bank Research Data Set from years 2011 and 2012, researchers investigated the rate of venous thromboembolism event (VTE) in these patients and risk factors for their occurrence. They identified a relatively low rate of VTE after vertebral fractures. However, predisposing factors for VTE include longer LOS and other defined factors (older age, complete spinal cord injuries, cancer, and obesity) to lesser extents. Protocols to prevent adverse outcomes can be developed and optimized by determining patients at greatest risk.
