Trends and Inpatient Outcomes of Venous Thromboembolism-Related Admissions in Patients with Philadelphia-Negative Myeloproliferative Neoplasms

A recent analysis of MPN patient data from 2006-2014 showed that those who were admitted to the hospital for treatment of a venous thromboembolism had similar in-hospital mortality as the non-VTE-related admissions (3.4% vs. 3.2%, respectively; p = 0.12) but a longer length of stay (median 6 vs. 5 days; p < 0.01) and higher costs (median: US$32,239 vs. 28,403; p ≤ 0.01).
